What’s more beautiful than a summer’s day? Shakespeare’s sonnets, collectively. While in Montreal the Bard’s plays usually get the love, Infinitheatre is bringing these gorgeous poems to the stage. BUUUUUT, this isn’t theatre like you’ve seen it before. Actors don masks by mask master Brian Smith, and under the direction of Guy Sprung will explore contemporary situations and characters to make the poems ring true in the 21st century.
