SummerWorks, 2016

By // Theatre (Toronto)


Toronto’s juried avant garde theatre festival SummerWorks ran August 4-14th this year and, over the course of those 11 days, our critics- Kelly Bedard, Beth McNeil and Lisa McKeown- covered 36 theatre, music and dance shows.

With 14 A grades and only 4(!) productions scoring less than a B, this might have been the strongest SummerWorks ever. We can’t wait to see what else is in store from new artistic & managing director Laura Nanni, she’s off to an incredible start.
