Slings and Arrows

Slings and Arrows

The actors and the crew of the New Burbage Festival are trying hard to keep their heads above water. The troubled Shakespearean festival had been slowly commercializing its performances, but the sudden death of the artistic director (he's run over by a ham truck as he lays drunk in the street, but never fear -- his character stays around in ghost form, haunting his successor and the festival) requires some changes. The new man on the job clashes with old rivals, is forced to take the crew in hand, and fends off the festival manager, who wants to make the festival over into Shakespeareville, all while trying to pull together the festival's latest production of "Hamlet."

I love this series.2 seasons watched and eager to see the third. Witty, clever, well acted.

This just HAD to be Canadian, eh? Lighthearted and somewhat silly. And of course, if it's set in Stratford Ontario it must also feature plenty of the Bard. Must see!!

There is so much heart and soul in this series, I was quite surprised by how much I loved it. Oh, and just a touch of madness which any stage actor can confirm is of the utmost importance!

Masterfully done, it stretches us in the large moments and the small details
