Events Description

Shakespeare in the Ruins with support from Theatre Cercle Moliere present The Winter’s Tale.

Directed by Michelle Boulet

Directed by former Artistic Director Michelle Boulet, Shakespeare in the Ruins’ annual promenade production is a special bilingual production of the play that inspired our ShakespeareFest entry: The Winter’s Tale. Presented in French and English, the cultures of Sicily and Bohemia are re-imagined as Anglo-Franco relations in modern day Manitoba (The Sicilians will speak English, and the Bohemians will speak French). As someone who grew up with an Anglophone mother and a Franco-Manitoban stepfather, director Michelle Boulet knows first-hand what happens when two cultures collide: it can be wonderful, confusing, reaffirming and divisive, all at once. It can also bring up petty jealousies between the cultures, which in turn feed intolerance.
