Although THE SHAKESPEARE GUILD was incorporated in the District of Columbia and is registered in that location, its offices are now housed in the oldest capital city in the United States, a cultural nexus that was founded four centuries ago, around the same time that an English dramatist began contemplating the implications of a “brave new world” and writing the play that many regard as his epilogue to the most brilliant career in the history of theater.

During the summer of 2011 we helped remind New Mexico audiences of this special moment with a musical "Tempest," starring Sir Derek Jacobi as Prospero, a special production at the Lensic Performing Arts Center that commemorated the 400th anniversary of the earliest known performance of Shakespeare's most resonant drama. Six years later, in August of 2017, we joined forces with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden to produce another "Tempest" that offered even more powerful echoes of the relationships that make rhia work so profoundly moving for audiences in the American Southwest.

Most SHAKESPEARE GUILD events occur in New York, London, Washington, and Santa Fe, but we're eager to offer engagements in additional settings. Meanwhile we continue to explore new program formats, and we encourage anyone who has special initiatives to propose or innovative projects to consider to get in touch with us.
