Openings We're Tracking This Week, August 29-September 4

Paul Van Dyck in Paradise Lost (Atlantic Fringe)

We have two Fringe Festivals this week as the season winds down; the Atlantic Fringe (in Halifax) and The Saguenay Fringe, north of Quebec City.

In Halifax, Paul Van Dyck offers his version of Milton's Paradise Lost. You can read an intimate and fine-lined profile of Van Dyck.

At the Saguenay Fringe, one of the darlings of Montreal's Fringe, Belzébrute, is presenting their piece Shavirez, le Tzigane des mers. You can read an interview with Belzébrute about their last show in Montreal, Manga.

The cast of the Thousand Islands Playhouse production of Tom Stoppard's Heroes includes names very familiar to theatre-goers: Greg Wanless, John Dolan and Mo Bock.

In Toronto, Soulpepper is presenting its new production of Arthur Miller's The Price. Diana Leblanc directs this story of a family brought together by tragedy, only to discover that walls which had kept them apart are still very much in place.
