With the support of the Canada Council for the Arts & the Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée,
Repercussion Theatre Proudly Presents:

Shakespeare-in-the-Park 2022

All Shall Be Well

by Amanda Kellock, with text from William Shakespeare

Locked down by Plague in London, Shakespeare writes King Lear… Over 400 years later, actors living through a pandemic of their own hear of this feat, and decide to perform a compilation of Shakespeare’s plague-related scenes. What could possibly go wrong?

This playful show poignantly samples some of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays, songs, and sonnets. The hunt begins! Let’s find traces of the plague in the Bard’s work, reflecting on our own lives along the way.

“We don’t just present Shakespeare’s plays – we enter into dialogue with them. Just as William Shakespeare used the theatre as a way to ‘hold a mirror up to nature’, we seek to explore the major issues of our time through the work we create. So why Shakespeare? He asks some deeply important questions in sublimely subtle ways. His intelligence, humanity and imagination are endless sources of inspiration. As a creative partner, he’s without equal.” – Amanda Kellock | Artistic Director

Each summer over 13,000 people gather in parks in and around Montreal to delight in the language of the Bard and in the magic of live theatre. Audiences are comprised of all ages and economic/cultural backgrounds. Given that the tour visits parks in very different neighborhoods, and because the shows are offered free of charge (with donations graciously accepted) the tour has always been a highly accessible cultural experience.
