2022 Production Lineup

  • Jul 02 - Aug 14

    Cymbeline

    by William Shakespeare. Cymbeline takes familiar story elements from Shakespeare's earlier plays - star-crossed lovers! mistaken identity! children lost and found! - and weaves them into something entirely unique.

    A magpie’s nest of devices and characters from other Shakespeare works: a heroine in disguise, a fake-death potion, a foolish king, a wicked queen, a false accusation of infidelity, and a finale in which dozens of revelations burst out one after the other.
    So enduringly funny!

    We are happy to announce, through our participation with the Globe Theatre, Jennifer Brewin as the director of Cymbeline. We are fortunate to have an artist like Jennifer make the move to Saskatchewan, and cannot wait for audiences to see her work.

    Iago Speaks

    A comedic romp into the imagined next chapter of one of Shakespeare's most notorious villains. World premiere by Daniel Macdonald.

    WORLD PREMIERE

    We are proud to be the first to produce this comedic, enchanting play that explores the very nature of storytelling. At first glance, Iago Speaks appears to follow the events immediately after the curtain comes down on Shakespeare’s Othello, but the story quickly turns, introducing us to Iago’s Jailor, a bit player, as he tries to find some purpose in his repetitive task of keeping watch over Iago (Skye Brandon). Don't quite 'get' Shakespeare? Don't worry - neither does the Jailor (Joshua Beaudry). This laugh-out-loud comedic romp into the imagined next chapter of a notorious Shakespearean villain is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
