The 28th season of Bard on the Beach continues until September 23rd, but Artistic Director Christopher Gaze has announced the lineup for the Festival’s 2018 season, running from June 6th to September 22nd, 2018.
The 29th season’s Shakespeare plays will include two all-time audience favourites and a provocative reimagining of a rarely-produced drama. Also on the bill, a Greek classic, adapted to add a local, contemporary twist.
The BMO Mainstage will host an exciting new production of As You Like It, set in Vancouver and filled with Beatles music; it alternates with a powerhouse classical production of Shakespeare’s epic drama Macbeth.
On the Howard Family Stage there will be two innovative new productions: Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens, redefined with a female-dominated cast, and a Bard-commissioned new adaptation of Lysistrata.
