For The Love of Shakespeare!

Scenes, Sonnets and Speeches on Love from the works of the Bard

This year Hudson Players Club did a little something different for our Shakespeare by the Lake presentation.  4 performances from July 13 to 16.  Also, rather than a full Shakespeare production, we presented a play about a troupe of 19th century itinerant Shakespearean actors and their ruminations on the place of love in the works of the bard.

This year’s show was curated and written by our club’s own Chris Gobeil, with Lily Sargent and Kyle Gregor-Pearse.

Chris Gobeil also acted as director, and Lily Sargent  as Producer.
