Photo Coverage: Hamptons Shakespeare Festival Presents 'Food of Love'

 The Hamptons Shakespeare Festival (HSF) is excited to announce it is working with Spitfire Theatre Company to present "Food of Love", an original production combining Shakespeare's most romantic scenes and songs.  

Since 1996, the Hamptons Shakespeare Festival, a nonprofit organization, has presented world-class cultural and educational programs on eastern Long Island.  Its free outdoor productions have been seen by tens of thousands of individuals and families, receiving consistent praise from local and national critics, and audiences alike.  HSF has employed hundreds of actors, musicians, technicians, administrators, and others.  Its educational programs have touched the lives of thousands of children from Montauk to Manhattan.

"Food of Love" is created and directed by Abigail Anderson, an English director who has worked at Shakespeare's Globe in London and the Royal Shakespeare Company.  Anderson has been described by The Oxford Times as "one of the most exciting and eclectic young directors in the UK."  The cast of four talented actors includes former HSF Education Director Amy Prosser along with Khris Lewin, Adam Mastrelli, and Laura Rikard.

Laugh with Benedick and Beatrice, sigh with Romeo and Juliet, get steamy with Petruchio and Kate!  "Food of Love" is a light-hearted look at love seen through the eyes of William Shakespeare.  The hour-long show brings together some of Shakespeare's most romantic scenes, songs, and poems.  Presented in an accessible, dynamic, and humorous way, this unique theatrical experience will delight both avid theatergoers and newcomers alike.

Performances take place at the Fort Pond House in Montauk and Amagansett Square in Amagansett. The view from Fort Pond House is stunning, overlooking Fort Pond in Montauk, and Amagansett Square doubles as a natural performance space in the heart of Amagansett.  Director Anderson commented: "The beauty of Shakespeare's language is perfectly complemented by these beautiful surroundings.  We're delighted to have the chance to perform here."
