Towards Rebirth

Hosted by Shakespeare in the Ruff

Welcome back to live theatre in Withrow Park. Welcome to Towards Rebirth

For Ruff’s 10th Anniversary season, we’re diving into what we do best: radical adaptation.

This summer we invited nine past and present Ruffians to create with us and divided them into trios. Each trio has created one act of this brand new play and dug into the themes of Rupture, Resilience, or Rebirth. They’re using shakespearean text, original text, and new music to tell their story.

This is a wild experiment in collaboration, creativity, and creation.

This is Towards Rebirth.

In order to keep our community safe, Towards Rebirth is a physically-distanced theatre experience with a limited audience capacity. Pre-registration is mandatory. Tickets will be available for booking August 9th through our website. All tickets are Pay-What-You-Can.


Relaxed & Open-Captioned Performances:

  • Saturday, August 28th at 3pm
  • Saturday, September 4th at 3pm


Shakespeare in the Ruff

We get it. Shakespeare can be boring. We’re here to change that. We strive towards the seamless integration of Outdoor Theatre, Education, and Community Building. Underpinning all of our work is the core value of Accessibility.
