On-line "Explainer Videos"

    Hey EdTA Friends!

     

    Thanks to those of you who have been joining my on-line events on Sundays and Mondays! This week's show is "Shakespeare's Histories; Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!" (Sunday on Facebook Live and Monday on Zoom)

     

    In anticipation of each of those shows, I've been uploading 15-minute "explainer" videos to YouTube, discussing some of the background of those plays. It seems that I've built up a rather significant catalogue of those videos in the last seven months, and thought you all might want a quick glance at what's available out there. You can find all of these videos at www.youtube.com/molierelover . I've listed them below mostly under the headings of the performance pieces that they're meant to accompany.

     

    Thanks! Enjoy!
