"Edmonton's Shakespeare Festival offers great summer nights, shelter from storms under the amphitheatre tent, and the magic of the Bard as it was meant to be seen: in the beautiful river valley."
So...come to Hawrelak Park for some Shakespearian drama! No one explores the darker side of humanity better than Shakespeare.
"The aging King Lear asks his three daughters to prove their love for him, and two greedily profess overwrought affections. Cordelia, the favourite, humbly responds, but Lear is unimpressed. Banishing her, Lear falls into a web of deception and disappointment, eventually leading to his own howling madness."
Tickets: Tuesday nights are Pay-What-You-Will at the gate. You may want to bring CASH.
