Shakespeare tribute continues in Plymouth

The Plimoth Players are finishing up their fifth season at Plimoth Plantation this week with “Shakespeare’s Guide for Lovers,” a new work that draws on the Bard’s plays, sonnets, and songs to celebrate romance in all its aspects. Performances continue with a 3 p.m. matinee today at the Hornblower Visitor Center and candlelit evening performance tonight, Friday and Saturday at the Fort/Meetinghouse in the 17th-Century English Village.

The two-actor, 75-minute show was conceived by Annie Arthur, who directed last season’s ”Much Ado About Nothing.” According to a press release, “a modern couple travels through love’s timeless trials and tribulations with the guidance of a found book.” They fall in love with Romeo and Juliet, find themselves with Anthony and Cleopatra, banter as Benedick and Beatrice, and “along the way discover how far love can really take them.”

Each evening show ends with a lantern-lit walk to the Visitor Center. Tickets are $12 for members and students, and $17 for the general public. For today’s matinee, museum guests can upgrade their admissions ticket to include a matinee ticket for $8 per person.
