Shakespeare at Winedale
Shakespeare at Winedale is a University of Texas program
dedicated to bringing Shakespeare to life through performance.
Founded by Professor James B. Ayres on the belief that the best way
to study Shakespeare's plays is to perform them, Shakespeare at
Winedale offers a unique opportunity to explore these rich and
complex texts through the creative act of play. Shakespeare at
Winedale is a program of the Department of English in the College
of Liberal Arts, but many of its activities are centered on the
Winedale Historical Center near Round Top, Texas, where for more
than thirty-five years students and audiences have come to
encounter Shakespeare's living art.
