This Summer on the Stuart Olson Dominion Festival Mainstage:
Macbeth presented by:
The clang of broadswords, screams of pain, splashes of blood, and witches’ incantations: Shakespeare’s Macbeth is the forerunner to modern action horror flicks. Bloody bold and resolute, the play is one of his most popular tragedies. Everyone knows at least one of its many famous speeches: “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow . . . “ “out damned spot . . .” “lay on Macduff . . . “ or even “knock knock – who’s there?” There is no better time to play a work of Scotland long ago as now when the question of Scottish independence is coming into worldview. And there is no better introduction to Shakespeare’s tragedy (and the beginnings of the modern action horror genre) than with this spectacular play. Macbeth will shake you to the very core in the summer of 2013.
The Comedy Of Errors presented by:
What happens when identical twins separated at birth grow up worlds apart? What happens when a beautiful woman mistakenly thinks you are her husband and wants to cuddle close? What happens when your wife locks you out of the house because she thinks you are already home? Comedy comedy comedy – that’s what happens! Shakespeare shows his mastery of the farce in The Comedy of Errors, taking mistaken identities up a notch by using two sets of identical twins and quadrupling the fun. What happens when you take a great Shakespeare comedy and mix it with Saskatchewan’s best professional actors? You get comedy at its finest in the big tent on the sunny banks of the South Saskatchewan River in the heart of Saskatoon.
