ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN
ARE DEAD

Written by Tom Stoppard
DIrected by James Ricks

jan 23 - feb 16, 2020
Libby S. Gottwald Playhouse

This hilarious Tony Award-winning Best Play imagines the lives of two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. As the story unfolds, they voice their confusion about the play that’s being performed without them, untangling
bigger questions about life and death, reality and art.

THE GREAT GATSBY

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Leslie Cheek Theater

Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The breathtaking glamor and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in this adaptation from F. Scott Fitzgerald s classic novel.

ALL’S WELL
THAT ENDS WELL

The 22nd Annual Richmond Shakespeare Festival at Agecroft Hall & Gardens
Directed by James Ricks

June 4 - 28, 2020

Helena loves the arrogant Bertram and when she cures the King of France of his sickness, she claims Bertram as her reward. But her brand-new husband, flying from Helena to join the wars, attaches two obstructive conditions to their marriage – conditions he is sure will never be met. This play brilliantly reverses all the usual expectations of Shakespearean comedy.
