Hamlet Thank You!

For all, our thanks!

Because of your support, HAMLET turned out to be a huge success: incredibly well-attended and well-received, and we couldn’t be happier. Tackling one of Shakespeare’s “big hits” is always a scary challenge, but in the end we chose to be true to ourselves and to our Manitoban flair, assembling an all-local, multicultural and vibrant team on and off the stage; and in exploring the idea of re-inventing the Classics for our current times, we learned that there is always something new waiting to be discovered even in the most famous of all plays. 

Thank you for your commitment to our community. One of the great blessings that constitute the ritual of making theatre is the act of making families, on and off the stage. Indeed, theatre only happens when we come together; and without you, Shakespeare’s great stories would travel through time unnoticed – what an unspeakable tragedy that would be! It is a complete pleasure to share them with you. Thank you for joining us.

Macbeth Muet


Macbeth Muet

FALL SCHOOL TOUR: Oct & Nov 2019

PUBLIC PERFORMANCES: Nov 12 – 16, 2019 (venue to be determined)

Directed by Jon Lachlan Stewart

A special partnership with Montreal-based theatre company La Fille Du Laitier.

Performed entirely without words, Macbeth Muet completely deconstructs this Shakespeare Tragedy into a fastpaced, visceral theatre experience, using the body, objects as imagery, and a ton of fake blood. Entire scenes are reduced to a single look, as Shakespeare’s complex and beautiful poetry is rendered mute, and searing. This unique and crowd-pleasing show was an enormous hit at the 2017 Winnipeg Fringe Festival. As well as traveling to schools in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario, there will also be a number of public shows in Winnipeg. Stay tuned for full details later this year!
