Shakespeare on-the-Rocks will celebrate its 29th season in the theater at the Chamizal National Memorial starting on October 28, 2017. “This year we are returning to a festival format: presenting a season of three plays over three successive weekends featuring plays that we will each be doing for the last time.” says Festival Artistic Director Hector Serrano. In keeping with theme of threes, the season features one of each of the three types of plays that Shakespeare wrote: tragedy, comedy, and history.
The Festival opened with a revival of Antony and Cleopatra in October. The second play, Much Ado About Nothing continues the festival during the first weekend of November. To close the season, Hector Serrano reprises his production of Richard III on Saturday, November 11 at 7pm and Sunday, November 12 at 2:30pm. This controversial historical figure with his physical deformity looms large in English history and his political intrigues and ruthless conniving may strike a familiar chord with today’s audiences.
