In today’s mini-episode, we are exploring Shakespeare’s Language Framework.

In this episode, we will discuss technical elements of how Shakespeare plays  were written,  as well as provide tips and tricks for navigating what can be a major hurdle to reading and performing Shakespeare: the text itself. How do you actually start to understand what is written on the page?

We dive into the clues that can be found by looking at the syllables in each of Shakespeare's lines. 

Shakespeare Anyone? is created and produced by Kourtney Smith and Elyse Sharp.
