A FALL EXCURSION TO BLACKFRIARS PLAYHOUSE*
"ROMEO AND JULIET"
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH
Twenty one ESU members and guests traveled to Staunton for a performance of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. The internationally acclaimed American Shakespeare Center performs Shakespeare's works under their original staging conditions at the 300-seat Blackfriars Playhouse, "a unique, historically accurate performance space ... a stunning re-creation of the first indoor theater in the English-speaking world." After a luncheon at Emilio's restaurant we attended the terrific performance.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
