Photo of the Day: Wetlands Garden, Shakespeare and Company, Lenox, MA

It may be hard to realize, with all those characters—and, yes, in the tragedies, corpses—all over the place, but Shakespeare’s plays are filled with imagery related to gardens. The Berkshire (Mass.) theatrical troupe Shakespeare and Company has invoked that beautifully with the Dorothy and Stephen Wetlands Garden, which I photographed when I attended several plays there in late August 2017.

I wish more people had the opportunity to encounter the plays staged there—and this lovely natural setting—as I did. But, of course, COVID-19 has changed everything, forcing the cancellation of this Lenox mainstay’s 2020 season.
