Looking for an escape from the woes of sending e-mails and trying to figure out your new iPad this summer? Travel back to the 16th century, where the computer was yet to be invented, with the Trinity Shakespeare Festival cast as they perform Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. Experience the eloquent drama of Hamlet's revenge on Cladius, Ophelia's betrayal and the tragedy of Hamlet's ultimate decision. Sound like too much turmoil? Instead, you can check your heavy heart at the door and watch as lovers Claudio and Hero attempt to trick their friends Beatrice and Benedick into confessing their love for one another in Much Ado About Nothing. The Trinity Shakespeare Festival, started in 2009, is a product of Texas Christian University where student and professional actors perform together. Whichever show you prefer, head down to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth for a break from the mundane. Each show is $20 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Plays rotate with one another and are at 2:30 p.m. (select Sundays) and 7:30 p.m. through June 27. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit trinityshakes.org.
