A “Bash” is a crushing blow. It can be aggressive and done with passion. It can be about making an attempt, going at it all your own. It can also be a wild night.
Shakespeare BASH’d is a young actor initiative that seeks to take ownership of their own creativity by producing Shakespeare’s plays in the city of Toronto for a wide range of theatre audiences and a wide array of different settings and environments or performance spaces.
Their mission is to present Shakespeare’s plays as they were written: with simple staging, clear and specific language with an emphasis on the words and characters telling the story.
Shakespeare BASH’d seeks to synthesize the traditional with the modern, to look at the plays from a place of curiosity, fun, excitement, truth, professionalism, and love.
