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 Lost has long been a Winedale favorite.
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.
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.
Arden of Faversham: This Tudor true-crime saga, by the young Shakespeare and unknown collaborators, portrays domestic life as a tangle of seduction, betrayal, and greed. The prosperous Thomas Arden is despondent, vexed by the suspicion that his wife, Alice, has been unfaithful. His doubts prove the least of his problems as Alice and her lover, Mosby, plot to have Arden murdered. Thanks to their incompetent accomplices, the path to bloodshed leads to hilarious black comedy as well as spine-chilling suspense. The Winedale premiere of a neglected masterpiece of domestic tragedy, newly added to the Shakespearean canon.
