Venue: Trappist Monastery Provincial Heritage Park (aka “The Ruins”)

Directed by Rodrigo Bielfuss

Prince Hamlet has it all: youth, wealth, and freedom. Then his father dies, his mother marries his uncle and he loses the right to the crown. Returning home from college, he finds his country a foreign land and the ghost of his father trapped in limbo. Will the Prince conform to his new reality, or will he rage against the machine?

Shakespeare’s most popular play and the touchstone of English classical theatre, HAMLET is reinvented for the 21st century with a woman in the title role, a dynamic and diverse cast and a drummer scoring the show live. With this most canonical of all Ghost stories, we are set to face the big questions of Life and Death under the vast openness of the Prairie sky.

FALL TOUR

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!
