Shakespeare-in-the-Park

With the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal, Repercussion Theatre Proudly Presents:

Shakespeare-in-the-Park 2021: Summer of Sonnets 

This summer, Repercussion Theatre returns to Montreal parks with a Summer of Sonnets, a special edition of Shakespeare-in-the-Park including pop-up performances, livestreams, workshops, and sonnet videos.

As this year’s Shakespeare-in-the-Park tour will be made up of spontaneous, pop-up style performances – in order to abide by provincial health guidelines for outdoor, pop-up events, we are unfortunately unable to advertise SITP 2021 offerings at this time. Although we find ourselves in the process of deconfinement, Repercussion Theatre will be complying with public safety guidelines aimed at preventing the gathering of too many individuals in one place, at one time.

Repercussion is thrilled that our Summer of Sonnets will invite audiences to experience the wonder and charm of Shakespearean poetry – even if our in-person performances cannot currently be promoted. We have a slate of digital offerings that we’ll be sharing – and we’ll be leaving clues and updates on social media about our tour…

So, grab some poetry, and get outdoors!

Check out our Sonnet Program/Chapbook, here!
