Spend some quality time with The Bard the next time you’re in the River City. The Richmond Shakespeare Festival returns to the lawn at Richmond’s 500-year-old Tudor estate home, Agecroft Hall, that stood in England during Shakespeare’s lifetime tonight and runs through July 31.
“King Lear” plays from today through July 3, and “Two Gentlemen of Verona” runs from July 7 through the 31. Shows take place from Thursday through Sunday and tickets cost $27 for adults and can be purchased here.
When you go, plan to bring a blanket and picnic to enjoy during the show. We can suggest some of our favorite spots for treats and libations to tote with you.
