July 11-27, 2014 at Rockwood Park

Tickets available online starting June 1.

A prince returns home. His father, murdered. His mother, wed to his uncle. The ghosts of his past, restless. What follows: Love. Confusion. Betrayal. Self-doubt. Violence. Revenge.

During the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, DSF celebrates by presenting the Bard’s most famous play.

Bring your own blankets or chairs, pack a picnic (or grab a bite from the Wandering Chef food cart), come for the pre-show entertainment, and enjoy Shakespeare outdoors at what Delaware Today calls “summer’s must-do event.”
