As fans of the Bard know, all the world is a stage – but let’s face it, some bits make better stages than others. The leafy lawns of Central Park are most definitely a fine setting – and for nearly 60 years, they’ve played host to one of New York City’s best-loved summer traditions, the Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare in the Park season. Run by the Public Theater, performances take place at the Delacorte, an amphitheatre set by a lake and a whimsically Gothic castle. Though they often feature new plays, this year they’re marking the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death with a programme in tribute. In July and August, Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan will helm a new production of Troilus and Cressida, its tragicomic tale of battles and bawdy passions in the Trojan War unfolding each night at dusk.
