Each season of the Alabama Shakespeare Project is an experiment. This year, we are offering a mini season, a half season, a semester of playing rather than a full year. While this comes out of practical exigencies (our leadership being on sabbatical in the spring term), it provides an occasion to think about broader realities. The fall of 2022 has seemed like in-between time, not-quite-returned-to-normal time in the wake of the coronavirus global pandemic. “Time is out of joint,” as Hamlet says.
