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. To reserve, call (203) 299-1300.
The production runs Tuesdays through Sundays—Mondays are dark as they say in the theater—with patrons permitted to stake out space on the grounds with a blanket or deck chair starting at 4 p.m., 3 ½ hours before the curtain. Most nights, one hour in advance, there is a special preview presentation for children.
