Tonight's Performance: Cyrano De Bergerac
The Island Shakespeare Festival is a summer outdoor theatre celebration of the works of William Shakespeare, other writers, and the acting craft. Performances run Thursday through Sunday in July and Wednesday though Sunday starting in late July.
2020 is the 11th year for the festival.
Throughout the summer, Whidbey Island’s first repertory theatre presents works by Shakespeare and from other playwrights as well. One evening you may go to see a play by Shakespeare, the next, a play by another great writer.
Evening Shows are at 6:00 p.m., with matinees at 1:00 p.m. Sundays.
There are no tickets sold. Admission is pay what you will.
The 2020 Season
Love's Labor's Lost
Quick wit and luscious language are hard to avoid in this delightful early comedy. Beneath the exuberant surface, Love's Labor's Lost exposes pathos and longing along the path to love. ISF welcomes director Santiago Sosa for his first ISF season with this witty and wonderful romp.
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Santiago Sosa
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Scott Kaiser
Abstracted violence, movement, and metaphor allow the audience to fill in the gory details of this gruesome story. ISF is thrilled to welcome back Scott Kaiser (playwright, Shakespeare's Other Women) to direct this troubling, timely tale.
Cyrano de Bergerac
by Edmund Rostand
Adapted & Directed by Erin Murray
with Artistic Associate K Woodzick
A story, at its core, about otherness and the curated personas we create. The production investigates these themes through the perspective of a trans/non-binary hero. Erin Murray (director, Shakespeare's Other Women 2018 & 19) returns to excite audience with this swashbuckling romance, full of panache.
