Virtual Theatre Today: Wednesday, March 3- with Patrick Cassidy,  Ian McKellen and More! All the Devils Are Here: How Shakespeare Invented the Villain - Macbeth. Iago. Claudius. STC Affiliated Artist Patrick Page invites you to experience the evolution of evil in Shakespeare's villains-from rogues and cutthroats to tyrants and sociopaths. A Tony Award nominee for his "electrifyingly maleficent Hades" in Hadestown (The New York Times) and lovingly nicknamed "The Villain of Broadway" (Playbill) for his delicious Broadway performances in Saint Joan, Casa Valentina, and Cyrano de Bergerac, Patrick Page explores how Shakespeare created the treacherous characters we all love to hate. This mesmerizing one-man performance is available online only. click here

Sir Ian McKellen in Conversation - About this Event During the summer of 1976 theatergoers who had the good fortune to be in Stratford-upon-Avon were treated to riveting performances by a young actor who co-starred in two of Shakespeare's most legendary works. That season established Ian McKellen as one of our era's most charismatic actors. It was altogether fitting, then, that in May of 1996 he was selected as the inaugural recipient of a newly-created Gielgud Award for Excellence in the Dramatic Arts. click here

Yes! Reflections of Molly Bloom - It is Ireland in the early hours of June 17th, 1904. Molly Bloom's husband-the wandering philandering Leopold "Poldy" Bloom-has just come home & fallen asleep in their Dublin row house. Molly-a daughter, a mother, a lover and a long-suffering wife-patrols the pathways of her wild and leaping consciousness. She is lustful. Scared. Exuberant. Heartbreakingly lonely. Vivaciously reckless. And profoundly funny. With an empty nest, an unfulfilling affair and a marriage long past its prime, Molly must find a way back to the rock-bed of love that she and Bloom once shared. Her unsentimental stream of consciousness is a song of songs that reaches backwards and forwards across the centuries. Written one hundred years ago, Joyce's words seem carved not just for today, but tomorrow too. Time ticks within time, dreams are upended, and life is thrown off balance. Molly seeks to reanimate love and ends up discovering herself. Dublin becomes Gibraltar, age becomes youth and a small room in Dublin becomes the world. click here

Virtual Theatre Today: Wednesday, March 3- with Patrick Cassidy,  Ian McKellen and More! IT'S WOMEN'S PLAY presents OFFENSIVE TO SOME - Canada's PerSIStence Theatre Company presents OFFENSIVE TO SOME, the award-winning play written by Bernardine Ann Teraz Stapleton. Part of this feminist theatre company's one-woman play series IT'S WOMEN'S PLAY, MIRANDA MACDONALD plays the Woman, in prison for killing her husband - a man who has abused her for years. Her journey as a wife, mother, daughter, but most of all as a person, unfolds in her interactions with unseen cops and a parade of talk show hosts. "Sadly, bringing focus to violence against women continues to be relevant," says Jenn Deon, PerSIStance Theatre's producing artistic director. "It's easy for people to assume that domestic violence is something that only happens at a distance. I think that 'Offensive to Some' illustrates how easy #metoo continues to happen in a society that still doesn't do enough to support survivors." Written by Bernardine Ann Teraz Stapleton / Directed by Ruth Lawrence / Starring Miranda MacDonald / Production Management by Mara Bredovskis / Stage Management by Jaimie Tait / Lighting Design by Diana Daly / Set and Costume Design by Emily Austin / Sound Design by Lori Clarke / Produced by Jenn Deon for PerSIStence Theatre / Associate Producer Erika Squires / Outreach Coordinator Tiffany Martin / Production Assistant Gao Huiyan / Videography by the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre / Editing by Brian Kenny. click here
