“Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.”

CSF’s beloved ‘Original Practices’ tradition continues with the gripping history play that’s been mired in mystery for hundreds of years. England’s king is out to capture the crown of France and the heart of a married countess. The cost of his lust? Personal humiliation and 150 years of English battle and bloodshed. This unique, one-night-only performance, inspired by the stage practices of Shakespeare’s own time, is summer’s hottest ticket.

News & Reviews

Scholars have posited that Shakespeare wrote the ["Edward III"] with Thomas Kyd, but the division of creative labor has, for centuries, remained unclear. The single performance of "Edward III," directed by Kevin Rich, will mark the production's debut at the CSF.
