“As Hudson Valley audience regulars know, the company has the benefit of a gorgeous physical setting for its productions: a tent on the sweeping green lawn of Boscobel, an early-19th-century Federal mansion overlooking a particularly beautiful stretch of the Hudson River and the mountains beyond.”

The Two Gentlemen of Verona
by William Shakespeare

Directed by Eric Tucker

Shakespeare’s gleeful, yet provocative, examination of friendship and young love features jealous lovers, a cross-dressing heroine, a hysterical clown –and the best role for a dog ever!

The Liar
by David Ives, adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille

Directed by Russell Treyz

Take one young man who cannot tell the truth, his manservant who cannot tell a lie, add two beautiful young women, a jealous lover–and then sit back to enjoy the hilarious consequences in David Ives’s brilliantly witty adaptation of this classic comedy.
