Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival’s 30th Anniversary Season runs from June 5 to Sept 21, 2019 in modern theatre tents in a spectacular waterfront setting in Vancouver’s Vanier Park.

On the BMO Mainstage, it’s The Taming of the Shrew, inspired by Bard’s 2007 Wild West production, a hilarious runaway hit; it plays in repertory with the Elizabethan-era romantic comedy, Shakespeare in Love.

Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block. The deadline for his new play is looming and he’s in desperate need of inspiration. And then he finds his muse – Viola. She’s Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play. Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms but their road to romance runs into plenty of complications, from nefarious schemers to overheated backstage theatrics. And then there’s the dog…

Directed by Citadel Theatre Artistic Director Daryl Cloran, returning to Bard after directing our 2018 Season’s record-breaking Beatles-music-filled As You Like It.
