One of William Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies balances the season for Shakespeare on the Green, alternating with “All’s Well That Ends Well.” It’s the Bard’s longest play, the story of a prince who seeks revenge against his uncle for killing the younger man’s father. It’s also one of the most performed of Shakespeare’s plays, even centuries after it was written in the late 1500s or early 1600s. John Hardy directs the Nebraska Shakespeare production.
