Outdoor play and picnic at Boscobel: Othello

Over the last few years we have enjoyed several fantastic performances in the idyllic setting of Boscobel's outdoor theater. This year I will be attending all 3 plays, come join us for 1, 2, or all 3 (see discounts below).  On Sunday June 22nd join us for:

Othello by William Shakespeare; directed by Christoper V. Edwards.

Othello, newly married to Desdemona, is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favor of the younger Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair, with devastating consequences.

Bonus: After the play there will be a Q&A with the actors.

Potluck picnic on the lawns prior to the show

Prior to the show we plan on having a potluck picnic on the lawn, with views of the Hudson River and surrounding hills. You can also enjoy a short stroll along their hiking trail or through the grounds.

As the audience sits under a tent the performance will occur rain or shine, only the actors might get wet whilst we still enjoy the surrounding scenery!


5pm - picnic and walk in the grounds. Bring a dish to share.

7pm - performance starts.

We will meet on the lawn overlooking the Hudson at 5 pm for our picnic; bring food to share and a blanket/chair.  Having cups and plates etc. would be a good idea too! The picnic is subject to cancellation, depending on the weather.
