Once it has, we will try to resume the show if we can.

JULIUS CAESAR
June 9-12 and 16-19

One of Shakespeare's great tragedies, which we've never performed outdoors. Was the assassination of Julius Caesar the ultimate betrayal, or the ultimate act of patriotism? Perhaps more than any other, this is a play for today, exploring the dangerous balance between freedom, violence, tyranny, and chaos.

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA
July 20, 22, 24, 28, 30

A play that we've never produced in any form -- a sparkling romantic comedy featuring smart women, foolish men, a gang of outlaws, and of course, a bit with a dog...

ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA
July 21, 23, 27, 29, 31

The very first play that we performed outdoors, 20 years ago! A continuation and expansion of the story begun in Julius Caesar, this epic love story spans two continents and the rise of the Roman Empire, but is dominated by one of Shakespeare's most complex and fascinating women.
