Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

Dates & Locations:  

July 9 - Doe Bay Resort & Retreat, Orcas Island

July 11 & 12 - Lopez Island Vineyards, Lopez Island

July 13 - Shaw Island Community Center

AWIM and the Hands of Time is short film about the life and culture of the Awim people, who inhabit a remote area of Papua New Guinea in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. In 2008, there was a scientific expedition (the Cruz Mayor Expedition) that traveled through Papua New Guinea, discovering and investigating the great archaeological and anthropological richness of the area.  One of the scientists’ goals was to explore the possible meaning of the “handprint art” that can be found in the caves of this area of the world; using non-aggressive methods, they were able to bring back samples from 15 caves for analysis in Canadian laboratories. AWIM presents an intriguing view of this aspect of the expedition, which located more than 200 grottos with cave paintings of a variety of motifs and figures – including animals that have been extinct for thousands of years. This film is the account of their expedition.

These films are organized by the FHFF as an ongoing fundraiser for the Friday Harbor Film Festival.   Show time is at 7:00 p.m.

Running time:  45 minutes.
