Presented by Poculi Ludique Societas (PLS) and the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto
Toronto’s renowned medieval and renaissance players continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a production of the N-Town Mary Play. PLS is a non-profit, non-Equity theatre company affiliated with the University of Toronto, dedicated to the production of early plays for research and entertainment.
The N-Town Mary Play is a Medieval English drama chronicling the biography of the Virgin Mary, from her own (less-publicized) immaculate conception to her eventual (more famous) virgin birth. The Mary Play is a liturgical drama, full of choral music, which will be overseen in this production by Musical Director Andrea Budgey of the medieval music group SINE NOMINE, and chaplain of Trinity College.
The production is a re-mount/adaptation of a piece originally staged in Oxford in 2009, as a collaboration between scholar Elisabeth Dutton and director Clare Smout. For our production, Elisabeth Dutton will be advising and overseeing, joined by Kimberley Radmacher as director.
