2022 Shakespeare at Winedale Season

Shakespeare at Winedale needs funding to support the 2022 season of this historic program of UT’s College of Liberal Arts. 

Since 1970, students and audiences have explored Shakespeare’s works in a barn in the Texas countryside in this celebrated English Department program. Students at Winedale learn about Shakespeare and themselves as they work collaboratively to stage some of the richest works of human culture. Shakespeare’s plays investigate profound questions of justice, government, love, family, and identity, questions still very relevant to students and audiences today. 

Project funds will support student accommodations at the Winedale Historical Center, as well as the supplies and materials that go into creating Shakespeare’s plays onstage, from fabric for costumes to paper for play-texts, from swords and armor to Gatorade and insect repellent. Generations of UT students have had life-changing encounters with Shakespeare through the Winedale program. Many of our audience members have been coming to Winedale every summer for decades, in order to experience Shakespeare’s plays in this unique style and setting. 

Your support will help us overcome the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, and introduce new communities of students and audience members to Shakespeare through performance. For more than fifty years, Shakespeare at Winedale has served as a model for experiential learning. With the 2022 season, we aim to give the program’s mission of creativity and discovery its richest and fullest expression.
