Congratulations from The Mount

The Mount would like to congratulate Shakespeare & Company on the appointment of their new Artistic Director, Tony Simotes. As you can see from this article in the Berkshire Eagle, when Shakespeare & Company lived and worked at The Mount one of the roles he played was Puck in "A Midsummer Night's Dream". We at The Mount hear many stories from our visitors about the fantastic performances they attended here, and their productions of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" were some of the most memorable. Many people have talked about how magical and beautiful the grounds were, as the play was performed outside in the gardens and among the trees. We wish the company all the best for the future.
