Edmonton’s WINTER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL features 2 exciting full-length, site-specific productions.


A Midsummer Night's Dream

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

Shakespeare’s hilarious summer comedy is given a winter makeover this year, in a riotous new production from Edmonton’s WINTER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL.

Join those merry mechanicals, libidinous lovers, and quarrelling faeries in the mysterious depths of the Athenian forest this year, as the mischievous Puck leads you on a journey back through time; away from the deep freeze of the Edmonton winter, and into the mystical world of Ancient Greece.

Directed by Lodestar Theatre’s brilliant Max Rubin, this production promises to be the darkly comic Winter Dream you have all been waiting for!


Julius Caesar

JULIUS CAESAR

Shakespeare’s timeless tale of a tyrant’s rise and fall is brought bursting back to life this winter, with a pulsating new production at Edmonton’s WINTER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL.

The future of the Republic rests upon the edge of a knife. A faction of loyal conspirators plot to save Rome from the throws of tyranny, but what happens after the tyrant’s fall? And who can protect the Republic from its even more dangerous enemies within?

Staged amid the vaulted arches of Holy Trinity’s Sanctuary Space, you will be transported back into the vibrant – yet eerily familiar - world of Ancient Rome, in an epic new production that is not to be missed!
