Shakespeare on Film series at The Cooperage continues with the first installment of "Antony & Cleopatra" on Thursday, July 27, at 7 p.m. Save the date for Part 2 on Aug. 24. This monthly film series chooses different Shakespeare plays on film, and a group, led by Dr. Robert Dugan, screens the film and shares impressions throughout the evening.

Dugan will introduce the play with a brief background and orientation. “Shakespeare is fun,” he says, “and profound because the plays are so resilient and adaptable. There are no definitive or final versions, so they remain alive and relevant.” For centuries there have been countless different interpretations of the plays. They are constantly revealing themselves in light of new perspectives and varied settings, from the Victorian Era to the 21st century.
