Shakespeare plays in college grounds during a Cambridge summer

cambs playsA real treat about summers in Cambridge is the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. Basically several of the colleges put on Shakespeare plays in their grounds for a month of open-air performances. The students work hard at rehearsal and props, and stage them in full costume. Upwards of 25,000 people attend, they tell us. It is complete magic to take along a picnic of smoked salmon sandwiches and champagne and sit on canvas chairs or on the grass and watch the play unfold. The treats this year include Romeo and Juliet in King’s, Richard III in St John’s and Hamlet in Trinity. I will certainly watch these, and possibly others.
