The Orinda Shakespeare Festival tends to put on four plays…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

The Orinda Shakespeare Festival tends to put on four plays each summer: three Shakespeare (this year, The Winter's Tale, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream), and one other classic or related-to-the-Bard (this year, Chekhov's The Seagull; a few years back, Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead). For the fourth slot, I nominate The King's Duck, which is too painful for me to read.
