"Fast-paced, engaging and irreverent, milking every ounce of the Bard’s bawdy humour."

- Alison Mayes, Winnipeg Free Press


Conceived and adapted by SIR, this four-actor, all-male version of the world's greatest love story has enjoyed two sold-out tours all across Manitoba, Western Ontario, and Eastern Saskatchewan.


A rare mix of the traditional and the audacious, and showcasing sprightly comic and courageously dramatic performances, spectacular sword fights, magnificent costumes and the original text, it's a show for anyone who loves (or hates) Shakespeare!

- John Cunningham, Winnipeg Review
