Summer Shakespeare at Western presents

Performances on Friday, August 27 and Saturday, August 28 will be held indoors and fully masked due to weather (heat and rain).

This year, the 41st running of Western's Summer Shakespeare will be part of a global initiative, Cymbeline in the Anthropocene. This modern-dress version of Shakespeare’s historical romance brings to the foreground the necessity of environmental stewardship, creating a performance perfect for a summer evening.

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: $15 for adults | $10 for students & seniors (available at the door)
