Timon of Athens

May 31, 2018 to June 23, 2018. In a year that kicked off with massive protests against institutional sexism, the Winnipeg theatre company Shakespeare in the Ruins (SIR) announces a season that uses the works of William Shakespeare to target the gender divide from a fresh perspective.The company performs Timon of Athens with an all-female cast.The second play of its season, typically a touring production that plays high schools and rural municipalities, sees SIR return to its 2017 tragedy Romeo and Juliet, this time performed by four male actors, which hearkens to the early Elizabethan tradition banning female actors from the stage (as portrayed in Shakespeare in Love)..
