Play Reading     

Meets 1st Friday NOT CURRENTLY MEETING
Details The choice of play to be read is often left to the co-ordinator but occasionally in the true 'self-help' ethos of the U3A a member of the group will oblige and take over. How the play is chosen is an interesting exercise. There are limitations, which have led us down some avenues which we would otherwise not have trodden. Firstly we have to consider the number of people who can be accommodated. Secondly we have to consider plays that have sufficient characters, so that everyone has a part to read, but not too many so that it cannot be cast. And, thirdly, we look for plays with more women than men (women are cast as men more believably than men as women!). Then we hope for a good playwright. Once in a while we have picked a play by an unknown, on the first three criteria only, and have had an enjoyable afternoon, or maybe one filled with groans and laughter. The plays are all in the Library Drama Catalogue so someone, sometime, has thought they had some merit. Comparing them gives us food for thought.

Poetry     

Meets 2nd Friday
Details OCCASIONALLY MEETING DURING 2020 The poetry group meets the homes of some of the regular members usually in the Morecambe and Torrisholme area. At some sessions members are invited to search out poems on a chosen theme and we read these to the group at the meeting. At other sessions a member will talk about a particular poet and some of her/her poems are read and discussed. Sometimes a member of the group will introduce a long poem and excerpts of the poem will be read. In the past we have occasionally enjoyed the visits of local poets who have spoken about their craft and shared their poetry with us. No special expertise is needed - just an interest in language and poetry. .
