Silicon Valley Shakespeare is thrilled to welcome back Shakespeare in the parks in 2022! We can’t wait to come together again with our patrons, artists, and supporters to share the experience of enjoying theatre under the stars.
For the past two years, we have all been faced with making difficult choices. At SVS, we felt the need to explore the power—and the pressure—of making a decision in our upcoming season.
Our 2022 season is all about choice—the choice to love openly or the choice to hide, the choice to succumb or the choice to fight, the choice to defy the status quo. Which choices will you make? Find out with our upcoming season:
Romeo and Juliet
June 3-19, 2022
Performs at Willow Street Park
A romance for the ages ignites when the passionate Romeo and Juliet meet. But with hatred and disapproval dividing their families, can their love find its way? Shakespeare holds the mirror up to life as we see the tragic consequences of choices fueled by hate. Silicon Valley Shakespeare presents this iconic pair as a female couple, showing the tragedy of these star-crossed lovers still rings true today and that #loveislove.
Measure for Measure
July 29-September 2, 2022
Performs in Sanborn Park
Trapped in a world where authority goes unchecked and power is abused, Isabella is given a nefarious proposition by the powerful Angelo—her brother’s life for her virginity. Left with nothing but her courage and cunning, Isabella faces a choice: succumb to Angelo or fight against the corruption she faces. Our beloved Bard deftly balances this compelling tragicomedy with the absurdly humorous and the tragically serious, as Silicon Valley Shakespeare shows how this tale is more relevant than ever in an age where many can sadly say, #Metoo.
Sense and Sensibility
August 5-September 4, 2022
Performs in Sanborn Park
A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and sensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, do you make the choice to follow your heart?
