Repercussion Theatre presents Shakespeare In The Park in Montreal, Quebec.

Shakespeare In The Park has officially made its return to Montreal this week — giving you a chance to see Repercussion Theatre's original play, All Shall Be Well, by artistic director Amanda Kellock.

The production is based on William Shakespeare's work with a "ça va bien aller" pandemic twist.

"Locked down by Plague in London, Shakespeare writes King Lear… Over 400 years later, actors living through a pandemic of their own hear of this feat and decide to perform a compilation of Shakespeare’s plague-related scenes. What could possibly go wrong?" Repercussion Theatre wrote on its website.

The play goes on to sample some of Shakespeare's most well-known and adored songs, sonnets, and plays and will be touring Montreal parks up until August 6, 2022.
