Shakespeare in the Ruins with support from Theatre Cercle Moliere present

The Winter's Tale | Le Conte d'hiver
Directed by Michelle Boulet

May 28 – June 20, 2020
Trappist Monastery Provincial Heritage Park

Directed by former Artistic Director Michelle Boulet, Shakespeare in the Ruins’ annual promenade production is a special bilingual production of the play that inspired our ShakespeareFest entry: The Winter’s Tale. Presented in French and English, the cultures of Sicily and Bohemia are re-imagined as Anglo-Franco relations in modern day Manitoba (The Sicilians will speak English, and the Bohemians will speak French). As someone who grew up with an Anglophone mother and a Franco-Manitoban stepfather, director Michelle Boulet knows first-hand what happens when two cultures collide: it can be wonderful, confusing, reaffirming and divisive, all at once. It can also bring up petty jealousies between the cultures, which in turn feed intolerance.
