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.”

Love’s Labour’s Lost: Self-denial is fashionable in the Kingdom of Navarre, when the young King persuades three of his courtiers to swear off all pleasures in favor of serious study. But soon after, the Princess of France and her ladies arrive on diplomatic—and romantic—business. The young courtiers prove prospective lovers, with the help of several local heart-led rustics (including a Spanish knight and a country clown).  Every kind of sport ensues, from rhetorical combat to mistaken identities. One of Shakespeare's wittiest and most charming comedies, Love’s Labour's Losthas long been a Winedale favorite.

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.
