It’s back—again, and again! Returning for a fourth installment after three years of sell-out performances, this ever popular Ohio Shakes tradition is perfect if you love Shakespeare, and even better if you hate him.

All 37 play in 97 minutes. Follow three map-cap wo/men in tights as they attempt to tackle all of Shakespeare's plays—frontwards and backwards and inside out (and socially distanced).

Starring Ryan Zarecki, James Rankin, and Natalie Steen.

As an outdoor theatre, we have numerous practices in place to keep our actors and audiences safe and socially distanced.

Part of this involves producing a smaller show this summer, with fewer actors, crew, etc.

In collaboration with Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens and with the approval of the Summit County Health Commissioner, and in keeping with all government recommendations for safety and social distancing, we believe we have a strong plan in place to protect our artists and patrons.

For a detailed list on how we are being responsible and cautious, please click here.

For a simple video of what your socially distanced evening at the theatre will look like, check back here soon (or follow our Facebook page).
