there and back again
- Anniversary week and we stayed in Staunton,VA to see two Shakespeare plays at the BlackFriars Theater:
Antony and Cleopatra ( fierce romance)
and The Winter's Tale ( romance too and funny).
This is the only replica of Shakespeare's indoor theater.
My husband sat on stage the second night. He was part
of the play in a way: had to roar and had his hand shook
by an actor in a scene. If you know him, he loved it.
Me: I sat downstairs about 10 rows back. It was preview
night so it was pay what you will! Grab a seat. You can
do that on any other night with tickets. Once the show
starts, all is for grabs!
We stayed in a bed and breakfast called Anne Hathaway's Cottage owned by a Brit from Bath. All Shakespeare inside and has been sold. Last time to stay there is in October. It will be turned into a tea room.
You could walk from one to the other if it hadn't been so hot.
We also saw some beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows in an Episcopal church:
