Immersive, site-specific production throughout Lougheed House! Aug 31 – Sept 11.
Calgarians will enjoy Shakespeare – and Lougheed House – in hilarious new ways when Edmonton’s renowned THOU ART HERE THEATRE presents Shakespeare’s comic MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING in a roving, site-specific production, August 31 – September 11.
Thou Art Here Theatre’s critically acclaimed production sold out for two years at Edmonton’s Rutherford Provincial Historic Site. Now, the company reimagines it at Calgary’s Lougheed House with a stellar 10-person cast that wrings every ounce of witty wordplay and physical hi-jinx from Shakespeare’s iconic household comedy.
Eavesdropping takes centre stage as the audience follows the characters upstairs, downstairs and throughout the gardens of Lougheed House. With revenge-driven villains, bumbling constables and witty fast-paced banter, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING will leave you out of breath with laughing and running. Shakespeare’s comedy is now more intimate and interactive than ever before!
