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.”

All’s Well That Ends Well: The orphaned Helena falls in love with the handsome Bertram—the son of her adoptive mother—and sets in motion a tale of determined love overcoming all obstacles. When Bertram is sent to the court of France, Helena begins a journey of cunning, danger, and disguise to try to win his love. Bertram runs off to war along with the deceitful scoundrel, Parolles, but Helena continues her pursuit, determined to outwit her hesitant husband. All’s Well That Ends Well overturns romantic and moral conventions in a sophisticated comedy of love and war.

Our celebratory season finale and reception starts at 6:30 pm with the performance starting at 7:30 pm. All tickets for this performance are $25 and include a catered dinner. Patrons can purchase tickets online through the Shakespeare at Winedale website, or by calling (512) 471-4726.
