Summer programming at Fairbairn!

Sunday July 23rd @ 7 p.m. Romeo & Juliet by Bear & Co. 

romeo and juliet


Passions soar and hearts break in this 90-minute version of Shakespeare's love story for all time. Here is love as obsession--love in a time of darkness. Here is craziness in the face of a culture where honour killings are rampant, and death is a better option than marriage to a chosen suitor.
Join us outdoors to celebrate the long evenings and warm weather and enjoy theatre that stands the test of time. Bear & Co. brings you an experience close to the touring companies of four hundred years ago. Bring a cool drink or a full picnic, raingear in case it mizzles, and bug spray, and watch six actors conjure the warring families of Verona in front of your eyes, while letting you in on the technical fun of staging a play in the open air.
Suggested donation: $20 per person.

This is the third in Chelsea playwright/musician Ian Tamblyn’s Gatineau River Valley trilogy.. Bring your lawn chairs and your sunscreen, it’s the perfect setting for an entertaining family picnic!  A presentation by Theatre Wakefield here!
