A hint of summer is in the air, and in Lake County that can only mean one thing: the 6th annual Shakespeare at the Lake! Last year’s production was the tragic Romeo and Juliet, which seemed appropriate considering what a grim year 2020 was. With hope on the horizon in 2021, Lake County Theatre Company and Mendocino College are teaming up for a comedy, All’s Well That Ends Well. Like most of Shakespeare’s comedies, this one tells the tale of unrequited love, mistaken identities, betrayal, and revenge. After a faked death, a miraculous treatment for an incurable disease, and a pregnancy, the play concludes with–you guessed it– a wedding! In the end, all’s well that ends well….or is it? Tune in for the performance to find out!
Preston Sterling is hosting a Zoom meeting with his children, third wife and closest staff to celebrate his birthday. The bitter old billionaire is bullying everyone once again and threatening to change his will when—ZZZZZT! Sterling is electrocuted through his phone. Enter Sloan, Rockford Sloan, homicide detective. Through a series of Zoom conferences, Sloan questions the usual suspects, all of whom had a motive. When every suspect has motive and opportunity, it’s up to our brave detective AND the audience to find the killer. With three possible endings, every performance means you’ll never be sure whodunnit. Auditions are coming up! Visit the LCTC website for more information.
