Talonbooks Authors in Stratford 2023 Season

Exciting news, theatre lovers: Stratford Festival has announced the details of their 2023 season and it looks like it’s going to be especially fantastic. Their theme for 2023 is Duty vs Desire, and we are delighted to see several familiar names involved with the upcoming season!

Among the 13 plays running this year is Les Belles Soeurs written by Michel Tremblay and translated by John Van Burek and Bill Glassco! This iconic feminist exploration of Québécois life first premiered in 1968.

Andrew Kushnir will be directing the world premiere of Casey and Diana, a play hinged on Princess Diana’s historical visit to Toronto AIDS hospice, Casey House. Casey and Diana is written by Nick Green.

Morris Panych will be premiering a new play, Frankenstein Revived! This play centers around the life and preoccupations of Mary Shelley.

A new English translation of Grand Magic written by Eduardo De Filippo and translated by John Murrell will also be gracing the season! This witty and moving comedy is about a magician whose career has petered out to working at a resort.

Yvette Nolan is set to direct Frances Koncan’s Women of the Fur Trade, a play set in the 1800s in Treaty One Territory where three women talk life, love, and hotties.

All signs point to this being a spectacular year of theatre at Stratford. Read more about their upcoming season here.
