We at Merced Shakespearefest are dedicated to create plays that reflect and embrace the diversity of our local community.

 

About 400 years ago William Shakespeare wrote about all traits human - romantic love, political betrayal, abuse of power, and most of all about the human soul and its search for justice!

 

From King Lear:"...till you have heard me in my true complaint and given me justice, justice, justice, justice!"

 

We are standing with all our friends in the arts, locally and regionally:

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER!

HUMAN RIGHTS MATTER!
