Welcome to 2022 and one of the most exciting years in our history.
This is a new era for Bell Shakespeare and after what we have all endured these last couple of years, this next season seems even more urgent and thrilling.
First up is Hamlet, the play of plays. This production enjoyed a wonderful yet brief season in 2020. It feels like a secret that only some have seen and heard but in 2022 we are back with a show that is even deeper and stronger.
The Comedy of Errors was postponed from 2020 and now we are thrilled to have this perennial favourite in our season and touring the country. It is a gloriously crazy play concerning two sets of twins and mistaken identities. But really, and in the end, it is a story about estranged and then reunited families. How apt — we hope life imitates art for all of us!
And how could a year be complete without hearing from our founder and the man who set up so many of the dreams of our Company, John Bell. One Man in His Time returns for a select season.
We can’t wait to see you all in person, in the theatre, as we celebrate in 2022.
