Are you a lover of all things Shakespearean? Then you are going to LOVE The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival!

The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival kicks off its 21st Season of bringing FREE, outdoor Shakespeare to parks and public spaces all over Northeast Ohio this Friday Jun 15, with the seldom seen “Troilus and Cressida”, adapted and directed by David Hansen.

In “Troilus and Cressida”, romance is dangerous in a time of war. The young soldier Troilus and his beloved Cressida are driven apart by forces beyond their control, and vengeance can raise its head from the most surprising of corners. A timeless and troubling tale, told with wit, pathos, and style.

This week’s performance will take place at Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Park (Coventry Rd and Euclid Hts Blvd Cleveland Hts) at 7 p.m.
