It has been a tiring but lovely 2 weeks for us. Each year, in the autumn, we run 2 booths at the Shakespeare Festival which keeps us very busy. We bump into a lot of people that we have known through the years and we get to know others who live in the locale and touch base with them. It is two weekends in a row, from Friday to Sunday, 5pm – 11pm.

To give you an idea what the Shakespeare Festival is (because, you know, you may want to come next year!!) here is an excerpt from their website:

The Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival is a community based initiative focused on providing patrons with classical outdoor theater under the stars of Northeast Kansas.

Each fall the festival transforms a wood affectionately known as Sir William’s Hollow into an outdoor Shakespearean Amphitheater and Festival. Located in St. Marys, Kansas the festival was established in 2010 and has grown into a successful annual event. Last year’s performances saw over 6,000 theater enthusiasts attend over two weekends.

The Festival flew in Dr. Joseph Pearce who is an expert on Shakespeare and a renowned literary scholar! We have purchased and listened to some of his downloads so we were excited that he was coming to talk at the Festival! It was great!

Next year, he will come again and will expound on the Shakespearean Play, Merchant of Venice, which will be the feature play of 2018!
