This month Diana, Sarah (our resident Shakespearean actor!) and I visited Morocco to present a paper at Université Sultan Moulay Slimane in Beni Mellal. This was part of the university’s ‘Shakespeare: Critical Perspectives Past and Present’ conference. Diana gave an introductory talk about REEP before Sarah gave a presentation about the use of Shakespearean drama in the Shore to Shore Project, and I presented REEP’s Anglo-Moroccan Shakespeare Garden Project. We even took part in a bit of Shakespearean acting – a performance of Richard III!
Throughout the conference we had lots of interest in our programmes and may even have found our first Moroccan REEP McLAREN Scholar for our 2016 summer programme.
