Ashland 2001
We flew down to Medford on September 10, 2001 and rented a car for our week long stay at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. The next morning we awoke to find the world had changed, but the performers at the Festival carried on, and with a heartfelt announcement and moment of silence before each play, this would be our most memorable Shakespeare Festival to date.
