The Shaw's 2021 Season - Shaw Festival Theatre

The Shaw's 2021 Season
“This is an expression of faith. Of course, it is impossible to know what the situation will be next year. We may have to change our plans again; we will be ready to do so. But we have decided to be optimistic and plan for a season. This year has shown us how desperately we miss the experience of live theatre. It may well be more challenging to make theatre for a while, but it has never been easier to make the case for it.”

– TIM CARROLL, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
