Photo: King Lear ActorsThe beautiful Whitewater Gorge Park in downtown Richmond Indiana is the setting for the third season of The Richmond Shakespeare Festival June 9 - 26. Two plays are being presented this summer. One of Shakespeare's earliest plays, The Comedy of Errors delivers on the promise of its title as subtle politicians, desperate moneylenders, and jealous spouses are driven to distraction by two sets of identical twins bent on causing confusion and hilarity. Shakespeare's existential masterpiece, King Lear explores the family conflicts resulting from its patriarch's emotional collapse. Children, friends and subjects demonstrate everything from wretched cruelty to perfect love. The Festival is held in the Starr-Gennett building in the Whitewater Gorge Park at 201 South First Street, Richmond. Tickets are available online at www.richmondshakes.org, or by calling 1.800.838.3006.
