Don’t miss Shakespeare in Gloucester!

The Cape Ann Shakespeare Troupe is presenting two adaptations of Shakespeare works at the Gorton Theater. I went to opening night on Thursday, and it was great!  One might think that Shakespeare would be intimidating, but the actors do a great job of making it accessible.  You also get to hear some lively Shakespearean insults when the characters take each other on (“Get lost, you dwarf, you tiny little weed, you scrap, you acorn!”)  Here are a few photos. (For more photos, click here.)  First in the show is ad adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

 

 

Second is a version of King Lear:
