A lovely evening in a beautiful outdoor setting surrounded by trees. The actors were engaging and talented, and understood the Shakespearean language well enough to be able to pull the audience into the play with humor and fantasy.

Looking forward to seeing more from this new group!

Their quarrel temporarily throws things out of joint not only for the lovers, but also for a band of roguish actors who gather for a rehearsal.
