Metamorphoses 2019/2020

Written by Mary Zimmerman

Directed by Jordan Pettle 

 

In this now-famous retelling of the myths of Ovid, the characters of Metamorphoses explore change, Gods, heroes, mythic journeys, transformation, young love, passion and humour. Unleashing the poetic, Phaeton flies too close to the sun, Orpheus descends into hell; all heroic journeys toward the discovery of self.

The Learned Ladies 2019/2020

Written by Moliere

Directed by Sue Miner 

 

Les Femmes Savantes originally premiered in 1672 and this version shows how little has changed when it comes to family dynamics, romance and artistic rivalry. Set in the present day, this is the “Real Housewives of Paris,” celebrating a ladies’ night-in, complete with fitness instructors, wine tastings, pompous poetry readings, posers and spa treatments, all in rhyming couplets originally written by Moliere, as translated by Richard Wilbur.

Winter time is here and we cannot wait to animate the Christmas Market with four short winter-themed plays!

MAHĀBHĀRATA intensive 2019/2020

This year we are very excited to be working with Ravi Jain and Miriam Fernandes from Why Not Theatre, spending the first two weeks of the year exploring their brand new version of the Mahabharata, which will have a full production at the Shaw Festival next year. The Mahābhārata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, narrating the struggle between two groups of cousins in the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pāṇḍava princes and their successors. Both Year 3 and Year 2, approximately 46 people, collaborated on this project.
