Audiences and critics have been praising this 1980s-era re-imagining of Shakespeare's most controversial comedy.

Admission is 'Pay-what-you-can' (sugg. $20 per person). Bring your own chairs and dress for the weather (and bugs).  See Shakespeare as it was intended - 'in the round' in the picturesque Heritage Pavilion.
