Event Description

The Bard’s works are filled with a multitude of loves and this year, Craigdarroch Castle, Giggling Iguana Productions and the Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival (GVSF) celebrate Valentine’s Day with Shakespeare in Love: Scenes of Love From Shakespeare, February 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13 and 14 at 8pm.

Shakespeare in Love: Scenes of Love From Shakespeare features love scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, sonnets and songs; all staged site-specifically, using the Castle’s magnificent rooms and landings as perfect settings for a Valentine treat. Expect scenes from Romeo and Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing and many more. “We reveal the many kinds of love that Shakespeare so beautifully illuminates in his works,” says GVSF Artistic Director Michael Glover. “At evening’s end refreshments and dessert will be served in the Castle’s magnificent Dining Room – the perfect Valentine’s gift for the special love of thy life!”

Shakespeare in Love: Scenes of Love From Shakespeare features a plethora of local talent with Michael Glover (Much Ado About Nothing), Kate Rubin (The Importance of Being Earnest), Adam Holbroyd (Lady Windermere’s Fan), Amy Lee Radigan (The Cursed Cabaret of Kelowna Day Taylor), Michelle Chowns (Gormenghast), and the 11th Annual Critic Choice Award winner for best local actor Melissa Blank (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg and Crackwalker). The show is directed jointly by Ian Case, Karen Lee Pickett and Kate Rubin
