We started off the year with Richard the Third (killing off the first historical tetralogy). Then we hit two not-so-well-known comedies, Love’s Labor’s Lost and Two Gentlemen of Verona, followed by probably the most popular of the early comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Then we hit my favorite play thus far, Romeo and Juliet.
Then we took a three month sabbatical as I worked on my novel, A Bloody Rose by Any Other. It was a wonderful experience. The book (or at least its synopsis and sample chapters) is with around 30 agents (ten have already passed).
After a wonderful trip to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, we came back on track in September for King John (yawn), followed by The (troubling) Merchant of Venice. And we’ve finished off the year with the first two plays of the second tetralogy, Richard the Second and The First Part of Henry the Fourth.
