Valley Shakespeare Festival

with Anna Albanese, Louie Hesemann, Bryant Hoex, Elissa Beth Stebbins and Alicia von Kugelgen

"Witty, wise and lots of fun ... Bryant Hoex and Hannah Knapp, co-stars of last summer’s Shakespeare production, shine again as heartbreakingly convincing young country hopefuls struggling to survive in a heartless big city ... The amazingly effective minimal scenery and costumes, and creative use of stage movement, lighting and sound effects fill the auditorium with a truly professional show."
