Shakespeare Unfolded

E-mail Print PDF

One hundred beauteous springs have from the forests shook one hundred summers’ pride.


B2CTheatre presents Shakespeare Unfolded in association with Theatre North West,

Conceived and adapted by Lauren Brotman, as part of the 100 Year Anniversary Celebrations of Prince George.

In this hilarious, and often moving story, a company of actors joins forces to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Prince George through some of Shakespeare’s most beloved sonnets, love scenes and live music.

Set outdoors on the grounds of our historic Veteran’s Plaza Spirit Square at City Hall, this midsummer-madness delight, told completely through Shakespeare’s words, brings together a community of players and audience alike, to celebrate and reflect upon our history, our people, our sacred natural landscape, the human experience and our connection to Nature.

Coupled with the production, Brotman is creating a live installation at SummerFest, The Memory Tree, where the community will be invited to write a significant memory they've experienced in PG on a piece of paper which will be tied to one of the tree branches in Veteran’s Plaza Spirit Square at City Hall. As the branches fill up, the history of the community unfolds, until finally we and the paper, fully unfolded, return back to the earth to begin a new cycle of life, newness and growth, a new centennial, as we enter our next 100 years.

Both events are themed by Trees, Paper and People, and remind us of the physical landscape we are a part of; our paper and pulp mill industry that thrives because of the trees that encircle us, and the people who ensure that our natural resources are used to further the vibrancy and growth of our city. Unfolded (Shakespeare Unfolded and The Memory Tree) celebrates the magical surroundings and vitality of our city and the heart of our natural resources; our trees, our paper and our people.
