Directed by Dr. Jan Powell, starring – Jay Banks, David Janosik and Alexander Sapp. This performance will be at the Carriage House Lawn at Maymont. Rain date – May 6th at 7pm.

    The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), is an irreverent, high-speed roller-coaster through the Bard’s plays.
