Ah, but you don't have to imagine a Tennessee Shakespeare Company performance. Experience it with us during this, our fourth season, as we journey through a Brave New World.
What a spectacular season it promises to be-creatively, emotionally, even geographically. This is Tennessee Shakespeare Company's year to grow and reach new audiences with new venues, more productions, and new partners taking us citywide and across the country.
This season's highlights include:
- Launching two unique and imaginative series: Shakespeare in the Park and Southern Exposure;
- Performing on new outdoor and indoor stages at Shelby Farms Park and Dixon Gallery & Gardens;
- Expanding our season with more productions, two co-produced with Shakespeare Walla Walla in Washington;
- Offering-for the first time ever-Season Passes. Now, you can see all four plays for just $80. That's 30% off regular ticket prices.
From Shakespeare's signature works to the South's singular authors, Tennessee Shakespeare Company offers you an experience like no other. It truly will be a Brave New World.
Journey along with us, won't you?

Shakespeare In The Park
Staged amid the beauty of Memphis' most inspiring outdoor landscapes, our Shakespeare in the Park series plays out on a brand new stage at the Wooden O Amphitheatre at Shelby Farms Park. Here, deep within the peaceful woods, Shakespeare's stories and characters come to life in often surprising ways. Every emotion is heightened, whether inspired by the shifting breeze or stirred by our professional actors. Come early to picnic, stay late to meet the cast. It's all very Elizabethan.
Scholars say the Southern tongue is the closest in sound and rhythm to Shakespeare's verse. Just one reason why our new Southern Exposure series is a fitting progression for our company. From the gothic (Flannery O'Connor) to the lyrical (Eudora Welty) to the philosophical (William Faulkner) to untapped fresh voices yet to be staged, our Southern Exposure series leads the call for Southern playwrights' works. Stories true to our Southern voice and significant to our cultural roots and present-day challenges. We launch this season with American Southern masters Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams.
