Last night some friends and i packed a picnic lunch and went to see the First Folio Production of "The Merchant of Venice" at the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook.  When I was young, we never studied Shakespeare in school, but now after seeing a few plays, I am maybe beginning to understand his language.....a little.  I thoroughly enjoyed the play.  The acting was wonderful and it's such a lovely place to be.

Here is the outdoor stage set.  Perfect!  We could not see many stars, but the crickets and tree frogs supplied beautiful background music.
