[ARCHIVED] Shakespeare on the Green: Classic Plays Head Outdoors

During the summer months, Seattle Shakespeare Company presents free, outdoor productions of classic plays performed in parks throughout the Puget Sound region.

The season starts in Issaquah with Shakespeare on the Green, and a production of “Henry V” on the Issaquah Community Center lawn.
Join the award-winning Seattle Shakespeare Company and Wooden. Wooden O celebrates its 20th anniversary season this summer with productions of “Henry V” — the company’s namesake play — and “The Tempest.”

July 11, 2013
“Henry V” — A young, untried king tests his mettle in battle against overwhelming odds. His army dispirited and outnumbered, his conscience unsure of his cause or his abilities, the young King Henry learns that leadership is far more than just being the one with the crown.

Aug. 1, 2013
“The Tempest” — Shakespeare’s magical tale where revenge yields to forgiveness. Exiled by his younger brother and marooned on an enchanted island with his daughter, the aging sorcerer Prospero discovers the human heart wields a greater power than all the spells at his command.

Performances start at 7 p.m. on the Issaquah Community Center lawn, 301 Rainier Blvd. S. Bring a picnic and enjoy these free outdoor performances!

Shakespeare on the Green is presented by the Issaquah Arts Commission and 4Culture.
