At this epic battle between Toronto’s hottest indie Shakespeare companies, contestants will face the ultimate test: a cold read of scenes from Shakespeare’s notoriously-hard-to-read First Folio...drinking every time they flub a line! Get ready for hilarious errors, outrageous rivalries, and insults that would make The Bard himself blush!

Spur-Of-The-Moment Shakespeare Collective
Shakey-Shake and Friends

AleHouse Theatre
Shakespeare At Play
Humber River Shakespeare Company
Wolf Manor Theatre Collective

A raucous good time for audience and performers alike, The Shakesbeers Showdown is a celebration of Shakespeare, indie theatre, and the incredible audiences who make it worthwhile, all to support the Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Program. The groundbreaking project is set to embark on its 2016 tour, which will bring Shakespeare to the common rooms and bedsides of hospitals and shelters throughout Toronto.
