Summer: Festival Season 2019

June 25 - November 30

Three great plays; two great authors; one great story. The 2019 Summer Festival Season will feature Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar; his own sequel, Antony and Cleopatra; and George Bernard Shaw’s “prequel,” Caesar and Cleopatra.  Taken together, the plays trace the arc of Cleopatra’s journey from an impressionable young queen to a powerful world ruler, exploring where and how politics and personality intersect to alter the course of history.

WELCOME TO THE SUMMER SEASON:

“Planning this season, I wanted to directly engage the unique power of repertory theatre to tell multiple stories that collaborate, and sometimes collide, in ways where the whole is even greater than the sum of its parts. The 2019 Summer Festival unites 3 great plays by 2 great authors that together tell 1 epic story of politics and power played out in private and in public. It is by turns funny, tragic, romantic, and thrilling. I hope that no matter which play you see first, you will be inspired to take the full journey of our Roman Trio.” – Ethan McSweeny, Artistic Director
