Great Lakes Theater Festival: Twice Told Tales of the Decameron

In Giovanni Boccaccio’s masterpiece, the Decameron, three men and seven women trade one hundred stories about Fortune while hiding out from the bubonic plague. It was the bawdy bestseller of the medieval age. Two-and-a-half centuries later, William Shakespeare drew upon several of these tales and stretched them out into his own masterpieces, penning immortal plays like Cymbeline and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. This traveling presentation from the Great Lakes Theater Festival dramatizes two of the original Boccaccio’s later amplified by Shakespeare to provide a fascinating context for their upcoming productions of The Two Gentlemen of Verona and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged.
7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium
