Brought ashore by the winds of Tempest and the force of Magic, Shakespeare’s troupe of island castaways spin a plot of treachery and deceit that only love can conquer. Whirling with conspiracy and intrigue, murderous intent and comic bumbling, the island is set for one last hurrah that is the Bard’s triumphant departure, stage left. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”
For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea's free performances can't be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.

Featuring a special post-screening discussion with guitarist Andy Summers
Based on the acclaimed memoir One Train Later by guitarist Andy Summers, Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police follows Summers' journey from his early days in the psychedelic '60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of GRAMMY-winning trio The Police. During the band's rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-'80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs. Using rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist's side of the stage, Can't Stand Losing You brings together past and present as the band members reunite, two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007. Following the film screening, Summers will participate in a panel discussion, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation.
