MEET THE SHOWS
Vancouver's hit Improvised Shakespearian Tragedy has arrived! Each night a brand new epic in the style of the Bard, made up on the spot based on the audience's suggestions. Equally hilarious and heartbreaking, the Spontaneous Shakespeare Company smashes together high art and low comedy to create an unforgettable show that has sold out houses for five years running!
Macbeth, as performed by clowns.
His Merry Wives
After a flopped boy band career, Falstaff thinks it will be easy to woo his way onto the bill for national tour of The Merry Wives. Who could resist his charm? Theatre Network Summer Academy presents brand new retelling of Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor" set in 1994.
A Burlesque Show
Queen Elizabeth has hauled William Shakespeare into court for a frank discussion on how theatre's most infamous playwright pens his female characters. Ruined virgins, murderous queens, man-crazy maidens, wicked witches and wild shrews? Perhaps Will has some explaining to do about the way he writes his most famous femmes.
