Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival’s 30th Season runs from June 5 to Sept 21, 2019 in two modern theatre tents in a spectacular waterfront setting in Vancouver’s Vanier Park.

On the BMO Mainstage, it’s The Taming of the Shrew, inspired by Bard’s 2007 Wild West production, a hilarious runaway hit; it plays in repertory with the Elizabethan-era romantic comedy, Shakespeare in Love. On the Howard Family Stage there are two new innovative productions: Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, set in India in the 1940s, and Coriolanus, a no-holds-barred political tragedy filled with resonance for our time.
