This was the third in a series of ‘Shakespeare in the park’ productions, presented on the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. The original vision of the play followed a great battle and director Richard Haines envisioned ACT’s production taking place in the aftermath of World War I (it being the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of that terrible conflict. Once again, ACT had marvellous cooperation from the Town of Stratford and Robert Cotton Park staff. In addition, Nova Scotia Tattoo, Mayflower Seniors Club, Trinity United Church, and Jewell’s Country Garden all made significant contributions to the project.
