Behind the scenes
ABOUT THE SHOW
Heralded as one of Shakespeare's wittiest comedies, this adaptation for our time tells the story of a group of soldiers returning to Vermont following a successful battle abroad. When they are all invited to stay under one roof, the result is a romantic comedy filled with love, deception, and mistaken identity. Performed by an all-female cast, this Much Ado explores the world of masculinity and the many ways in which it shapes our society.
Director Kevin Paley: “Working on this festival in Vermont is a dream come true. Shakespeare in the Woods is comprised of some of the most down-to-earth, spirited, and gifted artists I’ve ever worked with. There’s something about the serene atmosphere that allows each individual to maximize their potential in an environment that encourages artistic growth and ensemble unity. I hope Shakespeare in the Woods sticks around for many years to come!“
