BARD ON THE BEACH PRESENTS THE WORLD PREMIERE OF DONE/UNDONE & MORE! Done/Undone by Kate Besworth is a new feature film inspired by a modern question: how well do Shakespeares plays stand the test of time and should some of them not be staged anymore? This provocative and entertaining response, directed by Arthi Chandra, stars Charlie Gallant (Shakespeare in Love, 2019) and Harveen Sandhu (As You Like It, 2018). These two gifted actors play multiple characters, taking you into the worlds of two battling scholars, a pair of actors in Hamlet, a theatre-going couple divided over Shakespeares appeal and Shakespeare himself! Streaming August 12-September 30, 2021 Bards 2021 Digital Season also brings you Bard Exploredfascinating conversations with four of the worlds most respected Shakespeare scholars, plus a lively tasting event highlighting BC wines, and a new podcast series, A Different Stage.
