Shakespeare in the Park


July 16, 2017 | Ontario Tour | Pay-What-You-Can Admission | All Performances Begin at 7:30pm (Cyprus Project begins at 6:30pm)

For its 23rd annual Bard’s Bus Tour, Driftwood Theatre presents Othello. William Shakespeare’s blistering tale of race, jealousy and revenge is set against the backdrop of Canadian history, when in 1974 Canadian soldiers are caught in a life or death struggle on the small island of Cyprus.

In 2017, Driftwood Theatre embraces the unique quality of over 20 Ontario communities. With a site-specific aesthetic incorporating public space, no two performances of Othello will be quite the same.

All performances of Othello are accompanied by a special audio installation, The Cyprus Project, beginning at 6:30pm nightly.
