Sweet Tea Shakespeare Announces Summer 2014 Season

Sweet Tea Shakespeare will present its 2014 Summer Season at the 1897 Poe House on the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex Grounds in Fayetteville.The season features two comedies: Love’s Labour’s Lost runs June 18-22 at 7pm nightly. The Taming of the Shrew runsJuly 16-20 at 7pm nightly.

Love’s Labour’s Lost follows four buffoonish men as they pledge to live a life free of women and dedicated to chastity and academic study — until four beautiful women, including the Princess of France, arrive on the scene. Each of the men secretly tries to woo one of the women without being caught by his fellows. Uproariously funny and tenderly poignant, Love’s Labour’s Lost is a great night under the stars.

The Taming of the Shrew follows Bianca, who wants to marry the love of her life, but her father has one rule: Bianca’s older sister, Katharina (“Kate”), must be married first. The problem? Kate will have nothing of it. Enter Petrucchio, a would-be suitor for Kate, who employs some unconventional methods of “taming” Kate and who ends up being tamed himself in the process

Performances will take place outdoors. Audiences should bring their own seating and bug spray.Picnic style food and drink, including free sweet tea, will be served. Pets and outside food are not allowed.
