Shakespeare & Company has announced casting and dates for its 38th season, which will open on May 22.

"We have so much great work in store for our 38th season," said interim artistic director Ariel Bock in a statement. "Many of our shows are artist initiated, and it is especially gratifying to see these projects coming to fruition as full productions. We will be welcoming some new faces this year as well as bringing back many company artists. I am looking forward to the wonderful energy of such dedicated and wide-ranging creative teams. We also have play readings and other special events and are thrilled to be bringing back Broadway in the Berkshires."

Sarah Treem's The How and the Why will kick of the season with a run from May 22-June 26 at the Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre. Nicole Riccardi is to direct Tod Randolph as Zelda and Bridget Saracino as Rachel.

The season's Shakespeare offerings will include Henry V (June 18-August 23), directed by Jenna Ware, starring Ryan Winkles. The Comedy of Errors (July 2-August 23), directed by Taibi Magar, will star Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Kelley Curran, and Malcolm Ingram. Finally, the Jonathan Croy-directed Hamlet (July 16-August 22) will have a cast led by Luke Reed.

The full season will also include The Unexpected Man (July 18-September 6) by Yasmina Reza, Red Velvet (August 6-September 13) by Lolita Chakrabarti, and Cry Havoc by Stephan Wolfert (August 28 and 29).
