STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Hudson Shakespeare Company of New Jersey continues its 11th annual season of classic productions in Stratford with "Edward III" on Saturday, July 30.

The free play will be performed outside, in the library's scenic amphitheater.

The Hudson Shakespeare Company, now in its 25th season of traveling Shakespeare, continues its history cycle in Stratford with "Edward III," the little-seen drama written by both Shakespeare and Thomas Kyd -- though there's still some dispute over authorship.

The saga of the Plantagenet family, which began with “Richard II," follows the downfall of Richard, the rise of his cousin, Henry Bolingbroke and the coming of age of his son, Prince Hal.

The performance will begin at at 2 p.m. The library is located at 2203 Main St.

Additionally, the company will finish the season with "Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2," combining both plays into one two-hour showing on Saturday, Aug. 27.

These performances are held outside: bring lawn chairs or blankets. If there's rain or extreme heat, the play will move inside, to the library’s air-conditioned Lovell Room.

For more info, call the library at 203-385-4162 or visit its website.
