Auckland Outdoor Summer Shakespeare are ramping up the festival feel with even more on offer from 14 February – 11 March 2017, celebrating their return to the University of Auckland Clock Tower. The magical, open-air venue will host two of Shakespeare’s plays, a series of sonnets, and a gallery of local artwork!

The Merry Wives of Windsor – With a career spanning three decades, theatre veteran Stuart Devenie (MNZM) directs a bold cast of 14 – 25-year-olds from the Young Auckland Shakespeare Company. The show is set in the bubble gum era of the 1950s, when housewives ‘knew their place’ and knew how to pull the strings from behind the scenes. The Merry Wives of Windsor plays over two weekends in the afternoons before As You Like It, offering punters a whole evening of Shakespeare.
