FEATURING JEKKA MACK

Lend Me Your Ears is Scott Hylands, tour-de-force performance, of an actor's life lived with the words of William Shakespeare. Accompanied by the musical stylings of Jekka Mack, the piece takes us on a delightful journey of songs, sonnets, reminiscences, and Shakespeare's great speeches.

Besse's Will

CHRISTINA PENHALE

JEFFREY RENN

Love is in the air as Queen Elizabeth the 1st's court gathers in the gardens of Southampton for a wedding. Imagine, one evening, Besse (Queen Elizabeth) and Will (William Shakespeare) share a woodland rendezvous, the ramifications of which profoundly alter Shakespeare's genius and echo through the ages.
