Event Description

As an extravagant gala parties on behind them, the Bard’s most iconic leading ladies strut out of Shakespeare’s traditional canon and into our contemporary perspective to be re-considered from a modern-day lens.

Weaving together momentous scenes from 15 of Shakespeare’s most significant plays, Shakespeare’s Women shifts our gaze to revisit the familiar through the eyes of his most memorable female characters including Ophelia, Olivia and Viola, Isabella, Rosalind, Beatrice, Katherine and Cleopatra. The result portrays women “in all their infinite variety”—powerful, passionate, merciful, false, gallant, loving, desperate, beloved, lonely, mournful, and victorious— reminding us that Shakespeare’s has gifted us with characters that are not stuck in the past, but are the heroines we still need today.

Guest director Dean Gabourie brings his years of experience from the Stratford Festival and his passion for addressing issues of social significance with ACME Theatre to reaffirm the importance of the Bard’s plays in our time.
