GreenStage kicks off 31st season with FREE Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks July 12

GreenStage will kick off its 31st season of FREE Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks July 12. This summer's lineup includes some interesting takes on the Bard's tales.

In 2019 we celebrate the centennial of congressional passage of the 19th Amendment, which when ratified in 1920 gave women the right to vote. Director Jennifer Crooks has a troupe of Women's Suffragists - 'Shakespeare's Shrews' - perform The Taming of the Shrew as part of a raucous protest demonstration for Women's Rights. The story of strong-willed, outspoken Katherine and arrogant Petruchio's attempts to tame her into marriage at the entreaty of the men of Padua makes for rich material as Shakespeare's Shrews tackle marriage, gender roles, and social hierarchies.

For Henry IV, Part 2, director Chris Shea is swapping gender roles, casting three key characters - the King, Hal, and Falstaff - as women and played by women. This play is a tale of two Englands, one of means and privilege and one of salty earth, and probes what happens when these two worlds collide. The stakes are high for both and as the nation shifts, clear winners and losers emerge.

Part 2 is the third play in Shakespeare's eight-play, double-tetralogy of history plays chronicling the reigns of Richard II, Henrys IV, V and VI, and culminating with Richard III.

This year's Backyard Bard shows will be The Merry Wives of Windsor and Measure for Measure, both helmed by GreenStage artistic director Erin Day. Backyard Bard presents two stripped-down productions of Shakespeare's plays, each cut to one hour long, and both performed by the same four versatile actors. Sundays are double-feature days!

The GreenStage season runs July 12 through August 17.

Info about casts and schedules is on our website at GreenStage.org.
