A Valentine's Affair 2024
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Annie Jay
Sweet love, renew thy force; be it not said
Thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
Which but to-day by feeding is allayed,
To-morrow sharpened in his former might.
Spend Valentine’s Day with tales of love, seduction, and longing performed by Madison Shakespeare Company–and, of course, the unpredictable improvisation of Sonnets From a Hat.
Returning to the Bartell Theatre after a five-year absence!
