William Shakespeare: In Students’ Eyes
« on: July 17, 2016, 12:13:40 PM »
APRIL 23 - Historians believe Shakespeare was born on this day in 1564, the same day he died in 1616.

The plays of Shakespeare are the most widely read in the English language. There used to be a time when people worshiped him so much and they had so much reverence for his creation, that adhering strictly to his work was primarily important. But with the change of time, we have seen so many varieties of adoption to his plays and other works that it has become in interesting field.

Thus to commemorate the 400th year after Shakespeare’s death, the students of Shakespeare: Comedy & Tragedy course will create alternate endings for 4 plays i.e. As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, and Macbeth and enact them on stage as part of their course work.

The program will take place in the afternoon in the Auditorium of Uttara Campus on 8th August (Monday) 2016.
