BWW Review: Mirvish's OUR COUNTRY'S GOOD is Brilliant and ImaginativeBWW Review: Mirvish's OUR COUNTRY'S GOOD is Brilliant and Imaginative

Of course, not all members of the colony take kindly to the sentiment of using convicts as actors over laborers. Ultimately, the underdogs do triumph and the play is a hit. (more...)

The Stratford Festival of Canada, whose present artistic director is Atoni Cimolino, started on July 13, 1953, when Sir Alec Guiness walked onto a stage located in a large tent and spoke the first lines of what has become the internationally-recognized celebration of theatre.
