The Merchant of Venice

July 17 – August 2

Filled with contrasts and controversy, containing comic elements mixed with trenchant comment on the nature of intolerance, justice and forgiveness, this is a play not easily categorized.  The merchant Antonio is approached for a loan by his dear friend Bassanio so that he may woo an heiress in another city.  Antonio, cash-poor until his ships return from their trade route, in turn borrows from the moneylender Shylock, who sees in this arrangement the possibility to exact a gruesome revenge for the years of injustice he’s suffered at the hands of Antonio and the rest of the city.

All performances are at 7pm.  Please bring your own chairs or blankets.

The Life of Timon of Athens

By William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton
With Original Music by Gary Lee
June 5-28

Timon was the most admired man on campus — and generous to a fault. Betrayed by his friends, he abandons civilization and goes “back-to-the-land”. As unrest grows in Athens, both sides appeal for his help. Set at a certain state university in 1970 against a backdrop of unpopular war and student unrest, “The Life of Timon of Athens” is a hilarious history of hip hypocrisy.

All performances begin at 7pm.  Please bring your own chairs or blankets.
