What the Play Treats On

"First, good Peter Quince, say what the play treats on, then read the names of the actors, and so grow to a point."

A Midsummer Night's Dream I.2


Well, it's Winnipeg Fringe Festival time again, and many of our Ensemble Members (hardcore theatre-makers that we are) have been busy as Biebs putting together their respective contributions.  Here's what I can tell you about them (to find them, click on the title):


Because I'm the one writing this blog, I'll start with my show:


Lulu: A Monster Tragedy 


This show was directed by your humble blogger (Kevin Klassen) and included among the cast is Ensemble member Andrew Cecon, as well as SIR alumnae Alicia Johnston (Taming of the Shrew), Rob McLaughlin (Merry Wives of Windsor, Othello & more) and Charlene Van Buekenhout (Merry Wives of Windsor, A Midsummer Night's Dream), as well as Winnipeg icon Brian Richardson.  The show also includes video footage edited by SIR's Sarah Constible and props, costumes, audio/video equipment, chairs and risers generously donated by Shakespeare in the Ruins!


Speaking of Andrew Cecon, you should also go see:


Broken Wings


This show was written and produced by Andew, and also features the acting talent of Rob McLaughlin, as well as Shakespeare In The City's program director Claire Therese.  It was directed by Brenda McLean (Assistant Director Henry V) and benefits from the technical expertise of SIR's Eric Bossé (who can also be found as the house technician for KidsFringe).


Andrew is also performing in:


The Touring Test



Debbie Patterson is doing multiple fringe duty as a director this year with:



The Anger In Ernest and Ernestine




The Tracey Fragments


So get out there and get your fringe on!
