Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well set for Pinkney Park--Norwalk

06/11/2015 to 06/28/2015

1 Rowayton Ave., Norwalk, CT 06853. Phone: 203-299-1300.

Shakespeare on the Sound has selected "All's Well That Ends Well" as its 20th anniversary presentation and named nationally renowned Mary B. Robinson to direct The Bard's subtle and poetic comedy in Pinkney Park June 11-28, 2015. The provocative challenge to the conventions of gender unfolds under the stars in the natural outdoor amphitheater of the park in Rowayton where a family-festive audience assembles on blankets and low-slung deck chairs with picnic baskets crammed with goodies. Admission is free and so is parking nearby. At the same time, donations are collected at the gate, $20 suggested for adults, $10 for seniors and students. Reserved seating is also available for $50."All's Well That Ends Well" was selected for the theater's 20th anniversary from Shakespeare's inimitable 34-play palette that poetically synthesizes what it means to be human and crackles with wordplay and wit. The sheer lyrical force of Shakespeare's top layer is engaging but Robinson is committed to adding a dimension that reveals the Bard's intense passion and extraordinary mastery of the rhythms of life and perplexities of human behavior.
