DelShakes to Present SHAKESPEARE / POE 2013, 10/18-27
The Delaware Shakespeare Festival invites you to once again spend a night with two masters of the macabre - William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe. DSF actors will read selections perfect for the Halloween season from the plays of Shakespeare and the poems and short stories of Poe. Choose from three unique performance venues - the gothic halls of Rockwood Mansion, the eclectic galleries of the Newark Arts Alliance, or the grandeur of the Read House & Gardens in Old New Castle.
SHAKESPEARE / POE will feature DSF veterans Caroline Crocker (Titania - A Midsummer Night's Dream), Adam Darrow (Proteus - Two Gents), and James Kassees (Sir Thurio - Two Gents), plus DSF newcomer Clare O'Malley. The evening lasts approximately one hour.
