A case of mistaken identity ends in hilarity. A case of mistaken intent results in war. Canadian Stage returns to Toronto’s High Park for its 33rd season with two of Shakespeare’s great "Roman" plays on alternating nights throughout the summer: the fast-moving, delightful The Comedy of Errors, and the classic tragedy, Julius Caesar. With two exciting directors (graduating this year from York University's MFA program in Stage Direction in Collaboration with Canadian Stage) and one sparkling cast, you have two opportunities to take in this summer tradition under the stars in the High Park Amphitheatre
Outdoors and under the stars, the plays run on alternate nights from June 26 to Aug. 31, Tuesday to Sunday at 8 p.m. Each performance is pay-what-you can, with a suggested contribution of $20. The productions are presented by Canadian Stage in collaboration with the Department of Theatre, York University
The show runs throughout the long weekend from 1:00 to 4:00pm
