Young American Shakespeare Festival 2015
This year’s edition of the nation’s longest-running and largest Festival of its kind features the Bard’s Henry IV parts 1 and 2 and George Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem. Here’s a link to the Facebook event page, plus information about each of the plays:
Henry IV, Part 1 and Part 2
directed by Julane Havens
featuring Charlie Sexton as Falstaff
Amid uncertain alliances, troubled borders, and a dissolute son with ne’er-do-well comrades — including the entertaining, vain, and cowardly Falstaff played by Artistic Director Charlie Sexton — Henry’s rule teeters on a precipice. But as battles rage and new enemies emerge, Prince Hal rises to the occasion and proves himself worthy of the crown in word and deed. But in the course of these two plays, can this scion reconcile his wine-sop lifestyle with assuming the mantle of leadership?
The Beaux’ Stratagem
adapted by Thornton Wilder & Ken Ludwig
directed by Hallie Dizdarevic
Two broke libertines from London venture to the English countryside in search of a rich wife — for one of them, at least — but find themselves entangled with an unhappily married lady and a band of scheming brigands intent on stealing her fortune.
