Theatre This Week: June 24 – 30

Merry Wives of Windsor

Jun 1 - Oct 26

A would-be seducer pursues two respectably married women at the same time. Unfortunately, he fails to anticipate his targets well, and both women smartly compare notes over him. Set in the 1950s, in a town much like Stratford, Ontario, this play brings Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy close to home – and close to our hearts.

At the Stratford Festival until October 26. For tickets and more information, click here.


The Neverending Story

Jun 15 - Nov 3

Ten-year-old Bastian becomes immersed in a strangely compelling book. Having to hide it in a closet to avoid school bullies, Bastian is pulled into this incredibly rich world: a tale of a hero’s quest to save the realm of Fantastica from the encroaching terror of the Nothing. However, is Bastian just a reader – or a vital part of the world?

Mother's Daughter

Jun 14 - Oct 13

Princess Mary, daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine Aragon, easily wrests the throne from Edward VI’s official heir, upon his death. Mary remains haunted by her mother’s ghost, who urges her toward the course that earns the terrifying nickname of Bloody Mary. Following The Last Wife and The Virgin Trial, this fascinating exploration of women, power and the nature of leadership concludes Hennig’s brilliant Queenmaker Trilogy.
