During the eight-day trip, students will attend at least five Shakespeare productions, including “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Twelfth Night.” Cochran also intends to take the students to see “The Tempest” at the famous Globe Theatre. In addition, the course will include a sightseeing tour in London and discussions with British director Richard Digby Day, who has directed all of Shakespeare’s works.”London in the spring is an exhilarating experience,” Cochran said.The trip costs $2,100 and includes airfare, lodging at a bed and breakfast, tickets for the performances and transportation in England.
