It’s been a staple of summer in Vancouver for the last three decades! Bard on the Beach celebrates its 30th season with a lineup that includes a salute to an all-time favourite Bard production, the stage adaptation of an Oscar-winning romantic comedy, a cross-cultural story set in India, and a powerful, rarely-staged political drama.

The season kicks off with The Taming of the Shrew, inspired by Bard’s beloved 2007 Wild West production, a high-energy hit; it plays in repertory with the Elizabethan-set romantic comedy Shakespeare in Love, adapted from the award-winning film of the same name; both areon the BMO Mainstage. The Howard Family Stage offers two new Shakespearean productions that run consecutively: All’s Well That Ends Well, set in 1940s India at the time leading up to Indian independence, and Coriolanus, a riveting political drama filled with resonance for our time.
