The Will of the People: Shakespeare Re-invented
Founded in 2011 by acclaimed stage, TV and film actor Graham Abbey, Groundling Theatre Co. is a new Toronto based theatre company committed to producing imaginative, original and accessible productions of Shakespeare’s plays as well as works inspired by Shakespeare, in an effort to educate and inspire a new generation of audiences and artists.
By taking Shakespeare out of its traditional context Groundling Theatre hopes to re-examine and re-interpret the canon, allowing audiences old and new alike to relate the timeless themes contained in Shakespeare’s plays to their own world and the issues relevant to a contemporary Canadian context.
Groundling celebrated its company launch on Sunday, November 27th, 2011 at the Ignatieff Theatre, followed by a cocktail reception at Massey College, University of Toronto. See more details.
