The Utah Shakespeare Festival has announced an exciting new initiative to produce the entire canon of Shakespeare's thirty-eight plays between 2012 and 2023—and we hope you will join with us and collect these memories for yourself. We will make it easy for you by providing methods to keep track each season.
During these twelve years, you will have more than one opportunity to see such plays as The Comedy of Errors and Twelfth Night, but productions of plays such as this year's Measure for Measure and Henry IV Part One will definitely be more rare. So start planning now; you don't want to miss a single experience.
As part of the Complete-the-Canon Project, the Festival is producing all ten of Shakespeare's history plays in chronological order, beginning in 2013 with King John and Richard II, then continuing this year with Henry IV Part One, Henry V Part Two, Henry V, Henry VI Part One, Henry VI Part Two, Henry VI Part Three, Richard III, and Henry VIII.
One of the goals of the History Cycle is to give a cohesiveness to this series of plays that will be engaging and dramatic.
