Join us for a series of Pre-show Teas with our Harbourfront Centre Scholars-in-Residence. Admission is free with the purchase of a ticket to the opening performance of The Cardinals
The first thing that strikes us about The Cardinals is its powerful evocation of Catholic belief—when many of us usually think of the modern theatre as a very secular place. But theatre is a church, in its way—and religion has always had a rich relationship with it, if a sometimes uneasy one. Join Harbourfront Centre Scholar-in-Residence Matthew Sergi for an open and free discussion-based session, presented in conjunction with two University of Toronto courses on religious drama, in which we will ask tough questions about early examples of dramatized belief (a Passion play, it turns out, is not what you think it is!). We will ask: how does religion find its place in present-day theatre? Does theatre have a place in religion?
