On July 12, Borghese Vineyard will serve up "FOOD OF LOVE," a
light-hearted look at love with words by William Shakespeare and wine
by the glass.
Produced by Spitfire Theatre, this unique theatrical
experience is created and directed by Abigail Anderson, an English
director who has worked at Shakespeare’s Globe in London and the Royal
Shakespeare Company. She has been described by The Oxford Times
as "one of the most exciting and eclectic young directors in the UK."
Laugh with Benedick and Beatrice, sigh with Romeo and Juliet, get
steamy with Petruchio and Kate! FOOD OF LOVE brings together some of
Shakespeare’s most romantic love scenes, songs, and poems in a
specially created show for some of Long Island’s most picturesque
outdoor locations. Presented in an accessible, dynamic and humorous
way, this is an evening that will delight both avid theatergoers and those new to theater alike.
You’ll have the chance to sample Borghese’s wines as part of a
relaxed summer evening, in addition to exploring the vineyards and
enjoying the show. Anderson says, "The beauty of
Shakespeare’s language is perfectly complemented by the beautiful
surroundings of Long Island’s wineries. We’re delighted to have the
chance to perform here and, in doing so, throw the spotlight on to the
flourishing wine-growing community on the North and South Forks."
The 50-minute performance showcases the talent of four professional
actors, all experienced Shakespearean performers, who will move in and
around the audience to create an unforgettable and intimate theatre
experience. The cast is: Adam Mastrelli, Jake Oliver, Amy Prosser and
Performances will take place rain or shine at 7:00 p.m.
