Shakespeare and Company was established in 1978 at The Mount in Lenox, Mass., Edith Wharton’s former home, and currently occupies a 30 acre parcel on Kemble St., which it bought for $4.1 million in 2000. In addition to presenting plays and other programs on campus, Shakespeare and Co. runs educational programs throughout the Northeast.
