William Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost. The Summer of 2015 is you opportunity to see Shakespeare’s comedy of verbal dexterity and romantic dueling in this most sparkling comedy. Directed by award winning director Joel Ferrell who captured us last year with his high flying The Comedy of Errors, Love’s Labour’s Lost delights in the mischief of love foresworn, love withheld and love discovered. Written around the same time as Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this gushing and exuberant romantic comedy is Shakespeare’s most delightful wordfest — a joyful concoction of love, loss, and, being Shakespeare, hope.
William Shakespeare’s King Lear. The Summer of 2015 is your opportunity to see Shakespeare’s most heart wrenching story, perhaps his greatest story. King Lear is a tale of love and loss, of desolation and reconciliation. Trinity Shakespeare Festival favorite and Artistic Associate David Coffee has played Falstaff and Feste, and Polonius and Touchstone, and Caesar and Caliban. This summer he is King Lear, an aging monarch and father lost amongst hasty decisions, angry heirs and overwhelming desperation. King Lear is Shakespeare’s most towering achievement. This summer’s production will be directed by Trinity Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director T.J. Walsh who directed last year’s sumptuous The Tempest.
