Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2018 Summer Class takes the stage this July with performances of Shakespeare’s Love's Labour's Lost, Julius CaesarAll's Well That Ends Well and for the first time on the stage of the Winedale Theatre Barn, Arden of Faversham.

“We have a great season lined up, with some wonderful plays that people haven’t had a chance to see for several years,” says Professor James Loehlin, the program’s director.  “Love’s Labour’s Lost is a brilliant comedy.  Julius Caesar is a very timely political tragedy.  All’s Well That Ends Well is one of Shakespeare’s most unusual and surprising romantic comedies—with the heroine pursuing the hero.  And we are very proud to be performing the Winedale debut of Arden of Faversham, a play that has only recently been added to the Shakespearean canon.”

Julius Caesar: A new day has dawned in Rome. Caesar has emerged victorious from civil war, and Rome is ready to pronounce him supreme ruler. Brutus, a loyal protector of the Roman republic, and Cassius, an ambitious and conspiratorial Senator, face a stark choice: let Caesar rule or restore the Rome they loved. Julius Caesar probes the divisions between celebrity and statesman, public and private, free will and fate. In the surging tides of a disordered nation, the line between patriot and anarchist is drawn in shifting sand. 

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30pm, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students as well as UT faculty and staff. Patrons can purchase tickets online through the Shakespeare at Winedale website, or by calling (512) 471-4726.
