RELEASED: June 21, 2007
DANVILLE, KY—Anthony Haigh, professor of dramatic arts and chair of the division of arts and humanities at Centre, is directing Love's Labour's Lost with the Actors Guild of Lexington's Shakespeare at Equus Run on June 21-23 and 28-30. Thursday and Friday gates open at 5:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7 p.m; Saturday gates open at 4 p.m. with the show beginning at 7 p.m.
The play, about four guys who swear off women for a year to concentrate on their studies, takes an interesting twist when four beautiful women show up. The linguistic love fest will be held at Equus Run Vineyard, in the heart of horse country, in Midway, Ky., on a stage nestled against the beautiful Elkhorn Creek.
Shakespeare at Equus Run offers music, entertainment and wine tastings every night. Displays by Kentucky Artisans and Crafters and a catered dinner by Billy's BBQ are included on Saturday, June 23 and 30.
In addition to teaching at Centre, Haigh remains active as a professional actor, director and playwright. A native of England, Haigh earned a diploma from Rose Bruford College and an M.A. in theater from Lancaster University. After moving to the United States, he earned a Ph.D. in theater from Michigan State University.
