Yolana Wassersug’s first experience seeing Shakespeare was in Point Pleasant Park when she was seven years old. She has been to many Shakespeare by the Sea productions since then. Yolana studied theatre and Early Modern Studies at the University of King’s College. From 2008-2014, she lived in Stratford-upon-Avon—Shakespeare’s birthplace—and worked on her Master’s and Doctoral degrees there. After completing her PhD in Renaissance drama, she moved back home to Halifax, where she works for King’s College and spends most of her free time teaching, seeing plays, reading, and baking
An informal and enlightening pre-show talk and Q &A with our resident Shakespeare scholar -- Dr. Yolana Wassersug! Join us in the park before the play begins, where you can hang out and talk all things Bard. Whether you just need to brush up on the plot or you want to dive deeper into the themes, this "book club" is the perfect way to sink your teeth into Shakespeare's amazing plays. Feel free to BYOP (Bring Your Own Picnic).
