Description - Wellington Summer Shakespeare by Lawrence David

Since its first production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1983, the Wellington Summer Shakespeare has become an unmissable annual event, staging some of the liveliest Shakespeare productions performed in New Zealand. Over 33 years, the Summer Shakespeare has enthralled audiences, introduced new generations of theatregoers to Shakespeare in performance, and played a formative role in the early careers of many of New Zealand's leading creatives. Wellington Summer Shakespeare 1983-2017 collects photos, ephemera and memories from some of the plays' directors to document the evolution of Wellington's only large-scale, large-cast, outdoor theatre event.
