On Saturday, Professor Boika Sokolova led a London program trip linked to her two classes on theatre of Shakespeare’s era to Stratford-Upon-Avon and took students to see the RSC’s performance of The Taming of the Shrew.
Under Professor Sokolova’s leadership, students visited Holy Trinity Parish Church, where Shakespeare was baptized and buried; the house in which Shakespeare was born; and the site of the large house that Shakespeare built upon his return to Stratford in retirement years.
After time for lunch and strolling around the atmospheric Tudor buildings of Stratford, students went to a rip-roaring Royal Shakespeare Company production of The Taming of the Shrew. Brilliant, boisterous, and bawdy, this performance inspired sparkling conversation on the coach ride back to home in Waterloo.
