Shakespeare’s Macbeth opened the 29th season of Bard on the Beach in an intense, classical rendition.
The morning after a one-night stand, questions of consent lead to a highly charged confrontation. For Reed, it was a sexual fantasy played out in real time. For Angie, it was a violation. The details of their night together unravel as they struggle to unpack the truth of what happened.
This year’s production of Macbeth features celebrated Canadian actors Ben Carlson as Macbeth and Moya O’Connell as Lady Macbeth. Carlson has been a featured player at the Stratford and Shaw Festivals in Ontario for over two decades and O’Connell returns to Bard on the Beach after spending the last ten seasons at the Shaw Festival.
Bard on the Beach announces the return of its annual Young Shakespeareans Summer Theatre Camps and Teen Workshops, with sessions beginning July 3 and running through to August 31, 2018. Registration is now open for the programs, which allow children and teens from ages 8 to 18 to receive coaching by professional actors from Bard on the Beach, and perform some of Shakespeare’s most beloved works on the iconic stage under the white tents in Vanier Park. One of the theatre company’s key education initiatives for more than two decades, this season Young Shakespeareans will grow and expand to include full-day options that take participants beyond the world of performance and into production.

This was an incredible show, somehow managing to successfully mix humour into this brutal, suspenseful thriller. It was hard-hitting, emotionally potent, and I’m so glad I saw it!
In James Fagan Tait’s latest chamber play, ideas of gender and sexuality are questioned, as two characters, John and Dick, develop a friendship that might have other people raising some eyebrows. After all, when two straight men start spending every weekend together…and when one of them likes to wear women’s clothing, people start to expect an explanation.
