Much Ado About OPENING!
This Friday, the battle begins
The war is over! Or is it? The soldiers may be returning, but between Benedick and Beatrice, the battle is just beginning. William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is a lively showdown between the sexes with missed connections and romantic hijinks. Despite obstacles of all sorts and the meddling of some quirky characters, truth and honesty wins the day with love conquering all.

Opening this Friday evening and running until November 19, this production promises to deliver all of the classic, beloved moments, complete with smashing 1940s outfits and dancing!

Join us a for a special presentation of From Their Lips, a work-in-progress play based on Intergeneracial, a black youth oral history theatre project. It was founded by Fiona Raye Clarke in 2015 and is currently in its second year. The project involves youth meeting weekly, interviewing Black elders and fellow Black youth in the community asking them the same set of questions, and using their words and stories to create the theatrical piece entitled, From Their Lips.
Following the performance, the Hart House Social Justice Committee and Hart House Senior Members Committee will host a moderated talk back session with the performers, director and playwright. The talk will explore a dialogue in relation to the issues of race raised through the project, followed by refreshments and further informal discussion with the cast.
