Summer Schedule 1.0

2009 April 10
by admin

Over the weekend, I decided to try and work out a first attempt at a calendar and by Sunday, I ended up with what I thought would happen: All comedies scheduled, almost all of the tragedies taken care of and, well, the poor histories not very well covered (except in England).

So, here’s the general structure of my schedule and the shared Google calendar is at the end of this post (and looking for a more effective way to show my journey…probably a mashup including GoogleMaps). Anyway, here’s the major brush strokes:

MidWest Tour (Mid June)

  • Loves Labor’s Lost
  • Merry Wives of Windsor
  • Richard III

Run Up North (Stratford, ON):

  • Macbeth
  • Julius Caesar

Mid-Atlantic Tour (Mid-July)

  • Pericles
  • Titus Adronicus
  • King Lear
  • Anthony and Cleopatra
  • Trotus and Cressida

California, Here We Come tour (end of July)

  • Twelfth Night
  • Comedy of Errors
  • As You Like It
  • Coriolanus
  • Merchant of Venice
  • Measure for Measure
  • Taming of a Shrew

Oregon Trails (early August)

  • As You Like It
  • Much Ado About Nothing
  • Henry VIII
  • Henry IV Part I

In all, I have 27 plays accounted for with three plays likely to find (including Hamlet, Othello, Henry V), probably can find (Timon of Athens, Richard II), and probably won’t find (Henry VI Parts 1, II, III and Two Noble Kinsmen). I currently have a plan to finish seeing all 38 plays by the end of summer (which I will share in about a week) and the other two “Shakespearean-themed” plays to see (R&G and Dead, and RSC Complete Works of Shakespeare-Abridged) are very popular this summer and I shouldn’t have a problem finding a production close by.

The summer’s shaping up to be pretty exciting. For more details on the mentioned plays and others, browse through the calendar (beginning with June 2009):
