Merry Wives

Summer Shakespeare

Manawatu Summer Shakespeare, supported by Massey University, has been an annual event within the Palmerston North community since 2003. Each year an artist in residence is chosen to direct a production of their choice in order to collaborate with students, local artists and the community.

This year's production is "The Comedy of Errors", directed by Peter Hambleton.
