“Shakespeare’s Will” by Vern Thiessen

November 19 @ 12:00 am - December 5 @ 12:00 am EST

PWYC

Shakespeare in the Ruins presents

SHAKESPEARE’S WILL, by Vern Thiessen – a digital production
Based on the 2020 ShakespeareFest production by Rory Runnells 

STREAMING NOVEMBER 19 to DECEMBER 5, 2021

Meet Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife. Anne is mourning her husband, avoiding reading his will and, instead, she unpacks their whole relationship before our eyes – from the day they met to the day he died, revealing secrets and passions. This beautiful, cheeky and sensual play is a poetic meditation on love and loss by one of Canada’s most soulful playwrights.

This production makes imaginative use of a style of storytelling called ‘object theatre’, as multiple characters are ‘played’ by rocks and sticks as if they were lively puppets, all skillfully manipulated by Patterson; and a large sand box (from where the characters emerge) serves as the inventive design centre-piece. You have never seen theatre quite like this before; and you will never think of Shakespeare quite in the same away. 

“(Vern) Thiessen takes the sketchy outline of Hathaway’s life out from under her husband’s formidable shadow and creates a gem of a play that’s part fact, part fiction, and pure theatre.” — Quill & Quire 

Filmed on location at the PRAIRIE THEATRE EXCHANGE Mainstage in Treaty 1 – Winnipeg, Manitoba.

CLOSED CAPTIONS IN ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH, PORTUGUESE, TAGALOG, HINDI AND MANDARIN.
