CWAJ Presents: A Touch of Love from Shakespeare

11:30am – 2:00pm
¥2,000 – ¥5,000

Why not join The College Women’s Association of Japan (CWAJ) for a dynamic and interesting lecture, A Touch of Love from Shakespeare, given by Stuart Varnam-Atkin. He is a regular NHK presenter, actor, published author and true Shakespearean expert. All are Welcome!

A delightful presenter, Stuart offers Shakespeare and Love just ahead of Valentine’s Day.
Shakespeare in his plays, long poems and sonnets, covered just about all aspects of love, producing unforgettable passages filled with wisdom, wit, passion, frivolity, bawdiness, sarcasm, desperation and despair. One can find much ado about infamous couples: Juliet and Romeo, Cleopatra and Antony, Rosalind and Orlando, Katherine and Petruchio, Beatrice and Benedick, Thisbe and Pyramus – all, of course, originally played by men.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the women of CWAJ and learn more about Shakespeare and Love from a marvelous speaker. After the lecture there will be a Q and A.

Tickets for lunch and the lecture are ¥5,000 (from 11.30 am to 2 pm) while the lecture and coffee is ¥2,000 (from 12:45 pm to 2 pm). To register for the event, please send an e-mail and indicate if you would like to join for lunch and the lecture or coffee and the lecture only to luncheonmanagers@cwaj.org

The deadline for registration is 12 noon on February 6th, 2020
