Shakespeare in High Park - As You Like it | Until August 31 |

Shakespeare’s most musical play, As You Like It, follows Rosalind (Amy Rutherford) and Orlando (Alexander Plouffe), as they are forced into exile, separately, into the Forest of Arden. As their love story unfolds, the two become tangled in an amusing tale of lust and hidden identity. Inspired by 1950s France, director Nigel Shawn Williams creates a world where nature once again reigns, and where gender roles, politics and identity are put to the test. With original songs and music by Sam Sholdice, the play is a light-hearted examination of human nature that will make your heart sing.

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.

Shakespeare in High Park - Titus Andronicus | Until August 31 |

In the action-packed tragedy Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare created a vicious cycle of revenge between the Roman general, Titus (Sean Dixon), and Tamora, Queen of the Goths (Shauna Black).

Turning the traditionally violent story into a thrilling cautionary tale, director Keira Loughran has created a production that is accessible to a broad audience. Marrying influences from Imperial Japan and current Japanese pop-culture, with ancient Rome – Loughran has created a fantasy world in the wake of devastating war.

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 traditional home of the Anishinaabe peoples -- comprised of Algonquin, Mississauga, Nippissing, Ojibwe (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa), Potawatomi and Saulteaux nations -- the region includes Ontario, Manitoba and Quebec in addition to eight U.S. states and has inspired generations of stories and experiences that are spiritual, political and challenge certain accepted accounts of history.
