So many of our audience members love to prepare for a play at The Rogue, by reading, studying, discussing, and listening. As we prepare for the exciting opening of The Merchant of Venice, we are pleased to offer two Saturday afternoon talks about the play and its background. 

Join us at The Rogue on both Saturday April 18 and Saturday April 25 for what will certainly be thought-provoking afternoons with scholars both new and experienced.
