January 30 - February 24, 2018
Twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck and forced to find their way in a strange new land on their own. Fortunately, Illyria holds much misadventure, love, and laughter for them both. This refreshing take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy will leave you rolling in the aisles and begging for a thirteenth night.
Calgary’s Old Trout Puppet Workshop is world-renowned for their wildly fantastical and brilliantly inventive designs. Combine their imaginations with Shakespeare’s wit, and Jillian Keiley’s direction, and the results are truly original and hilarious. You’ve never seen the Bard like this.
