Events Description


The Play the Fool Festival is an artist-driven, non-profit theatre festival that presents clown theatre and physical comedy performances. We provide an opportunity for local Edmonton/Amiskwaciwâskahikan, Canadian and international artists to perform their original work in a professional festival environment, and showcase a diverse range of styles to audiences.
The festival brings together seasoned and emerging local clown-theatre and physical theatre artists for four days of performances that embrace risk, exploration, and play. We welcome both established and emerging theatre artists, and artists with diverse gender identities and cultural backgrounds.


Play the Fool and the producing body, Hit That Jive Productions are taking a cautious approach to our September 2021 programming.
The good news is, we expect to be live and in-person this September at the Backstage Theatre for the Play the Fool Festival 2021!
