Bloody Battle    Thurs. – Aug. 19

Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Site

Dismemberment, disembowlment and a meat grinder, oh my! For the first time in its history, puppets are taking the stage to tell the Bard’s most bloody tale Titus Andronicus has been adapted by Stumped Productions. The group are also the founders of the Wide Open Children’s Theatre Company but we can forgive them this most disturbing turn. This special production is running on the secondary stage at the festival. Of course you won’t want to miss the other offerings at this year’s Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival which opened last week. Hamlet and Merry Wives of Windsor also run until mid-August. Tickets are $10 – $40.
