Reading Group

Every month we meet as a group via Zoom to discuss a secondary or primary text which has been chosen by one of our members. Our next reading group is on Tuesday 19th July at 2pm (BST) and we will be talking about Emma Whipday’s and Freyja Cox Jensen’s article: “‘Original Practices’, Lost Plays, and Historical Imagination: Staging The Tragedy of Merry” chosen by Evey Reidy. You can view the prompts here.

You can see details about our past reading groups here. Sometimes we are fortunate enough to talk to invited guests about their work. We’ve talked to Dr Andy Kesson (University of Roehampton) about A Bit Lit and Box Office Bears, Professor David McInnis (University of Melbourne) about the Lost Plays Database and his book Shakespeare and Lost Plays, and Dr Sophie Duncan (University of Oxford) about Shakespeare’s Props: Memory and Cognition.

All are welcome to join our reading group. Please email Anouska and Sierra at if you’d like to attend or lead a session.
