Shakespeare by the Bow is one of the many great things about Calgary in the summer. But in 2021, this popular Theatre Calgary show is becoming Shakespeare on the Go! The traditional Shakespeare by the Bow is being re-imagined and going on the road in a fun and safe way.

This summer there will be three casts of emerging artists travelling the city performing scenes (not the full play) from Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors in three different 45-minute outdoor shows. These fun and uplifting performances will be following “everything-out-of-the-bag” creative storytelling.

Each 45-minute show will focus on a specific theme, and these performances will play separately at different locations throughout the summer.

The outdoor performance partnerships will include Heritage Park, multiple Calgary Public Library locations, Brookfield Residential properties, Springboard Performance’s containR, and they will also present the shows once a week in August at numerous public parks in Calgary (locations TBA).
