More about the event from FathomEvents.com:
When the rule of a hedonistic and mercurial king is questioned, rebellion, assassination and excommunication ensue, culminating in the chilling attempt to commit an atrocity against a child, whose mother’s anguished grief cannot atone for her blinkered ambitions for her son.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Shakespeare’s King John, with commanding performances by Tom McCamus, Seana McKenna, Graham Abbey and Patricia Collins, directed by Tim Carroll, whose recent Shakespeare productions took Broadway by storm. Here’s what the critics are saying:
• “Deliciously contemporary.” J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail • “Tom McCamus plays King John, rivetingly, as a neurotic narcissist. It’s a daring performance.” Robert Cushman, National Post • “This sublime King John has a remarkable intimacy, crystallized by the formidable actor Graham Abbey, whose relationship with the audience becomes one of the closest I’ve ever seen in a Shakespearean drama.” Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune • “The action is riveting, the political machinations delicious and all the performers, royal or otherwise, take great delight in the parts they’re playing.” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
