Shakespeare’s Criminal
April 27 - 28

A contemporary yet timeless fable of queer sexualities.

Orpheus Productions

Shakespeare is an old, conservative farmer/poet who claims to be heterosexual. A young, HIV-positive gay man appears at his farm and tries to seduce him. Will Shakespeare succumb? The surprise entrance of a female academic, who has the gift of transformative magic, suddenly changes the fortunes of the two men. And in the end, someone is turned into a tree.

Perennial provocateur Sky Gilbert is back on the Buddies stage with a special workshop presentation of a new pastoral cantata, being developed with Dora Award-winning composer Dustin Peters and internationally celebrated mezzo-soprano Marion Newman.
