• This weekend’s events for the eighth annual Redlands Shakespeare Festival will include a historical workshop presentation by Bonner Cutting, a member of the board of trustees of the Shakespeare Fellowship and the board of directors of the Shakespeare Authorship Coalition.

      Cutting will present “Let the Punishment Fit the Crime” at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 19, in the A.K. Smiley Public Library Assembly Room, 125 W. Vine St., Redlands.

      The presentation will explore the fate of writers who pushed the political envelope and challenged Elizabethan censorship during the reign of the queen of Shakespearean times.

      “It is incredible to learn about the terrible fates that were suffered by those who challenged the queen and her council with their ‘subversive’ writings,” said Steven Sabel, founding artistic director of the festival.
