SVS celebrates the Bard’s birthday with The “Dear Will” Letters, an updated version of 2008’s wildly popular SVS world premiere. Join some of Shakespeare’s famously infatuated characters as they write to our dear Will for advice on their romantic woes.
Written by SVS resident Dramaturg Doll Piccotto and William Shakespeare himself, this production will feature real-life couples performing Shakespeare’s most iconic lovelorn personalities. Performed live online, it will also feature scenes filmed from our summer stage at Sanborn Park!
The “Dear Will” Letters will feature a post-show toast to the Bard with the cast, and an opportunity to ask the couples what it was like playing the Shakespearean pairs!
By Doll Piccotto and William Shakespeare
Directed by Angie Higgins and Doll Piccotto
