Event Date: Jun 29, 2020 - Aug 15, 2020
Location: Various parks and public spaces throughout the Ottawa region
The 2020 Torchlight Shakespeare in the Park tour of The Tempest, is postponed with more info to come about a shortened tour, potentially in September.
a Company of Fools Theatre is celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2020 with our Torchlight Tour in July and August visiting a different park or public open space every evening from Monday to Saturday. This year, we bring our foolish signature style of professional-theatre-that-doesn’t-take-itself-too-seriously to our 90-minute adaptation of The Tempest! “When a ship bearing his arch enemies draws near, the magical ex-Duke Prospero must use all of their wits and mystical powers in order to enact their long-planned revenge, end their twelve-year exile, reclaim political power in Milan, and establish their daughter as a princess in a rival kingdom. If they falter, their enemies will see through their many ruses and manipulations, leaving them lost at sea in exile, or even worse – dead!”
We believe that it doesn’t matter where you live, how much you make, or how old you are: theatre should be accessible to everyone. All of our performances are for pass-the-hat donations, family friendly, and our tour to community parks means we bring the theatre to your own neighbourhood.
