Twelfth Night
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Matthew Gorman
Nov 6 - 23, 2013

Shakespeare's beloved comedy begins with a shipwreck and ends with marriages, reunions and some good old-fashioned revenge - with plenty of hijinks and hilarity in between. Featuring some of the Bard's most memorable comedic characters, Twelfth Night is classic comedy at its best, full of mistaken identity, disguise, intrigue and, above all, the search for love.

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)
By Ann-Marie Macdonald
Feb 28 - Mar 8, 2014

Winner of the Governor General's Award for Drama and the Floyd S. Chalmers Canadian Play Award, Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) tells the other-worldly, comedic story of Constance Ledbelly, an overlooked academic striving to prove her theory about two of Shakespeare's best-known plays. Through Constance's often-hilarious subconscious journey of self-discovery, Shakespeare's archetypal heroines are shown in a new light as they try to untangle issues of identity, sexuality and self-worth.
