Stratford Festival Theatre

Monday, July 7, 2014

This is the Stratford Festival's Festival Theatre building, amid a wash of golden, late afternoon sun.

The dramatic sky above seemed fitting for the kinds of scenes that have played out on the historic stage below. The award winning building opened in 1957. It opened a mere 3 years after Sir Alec Guinness recited the opening words of Richard III, "Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this 
sun of York".

Richard III was the first play at the Stratford Festival and, on this day, the summer sun was certain glorious. It's one of the many reasons why I miss my hometown.
