JULY 1 – 29 ONLY
Of Human Bondage - The Irene Diamond Stage
W. Somerset Maugham's epic tale of lustful obsession and the pursuit of art is adapted for the stage for the first time. This highly theatrical production about love, class, and unrequited desire, won multiple Dora Awards (Toronto’s Tony) for Best Production, Best Play, Best Direction, Best Set Design, Best Sound Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Ensemble performance.
Spoon River - The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre
"Is your soul alive? Then let it feed!" Winner of Best Musical, this adaptation from Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology is a highly original immersive, life-affirming, graveyard musical. In a suspended moment during the burial of one who died too young, the dead come forth and share with us the unfiltered truth of their small town existence.
Kim's Convenience - The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
The most successful new Canadian play of the last decade, Ins Choi’s Kim's Convenience - set in a family-run Korean variety store - is a hilarious and heartwarming ode to generations of immigrants and their families.
Alligator Pie - The Irene Diamond Stage
Music, invention, and delicious imagination come together in a show for the whole family. Generations of Canadian children have grown up to the poems of Dennis Lee, "Canada's Father Goose"(also known for his lyrics to Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock). Five of those children, now grown-up creators, have made an absolutely delightful award-winning musical that celebrates the written word and the very notion of "play".
A Brimful of Asha - The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
After winning over crowds around the globe, A Brimful of Asha makes its New York City debut. Soulpepper Resident Artist and Baillie Fellow Ravi Jain shares the stage with his real life non-actor mother, Asha, to tell each other’s side of Asha’s attempt to arrange Ravi’s marriage.
Cage - Ford Foundation Studio Theatre
A stage, even the one within our mind, is a cage....that defines, limits, and reveals. Inspired by apes, Zen Buddhism, and the ideas of avant-garde composer John Cage, this experimental meditation on time, space, memory, and the human animal is performed by leading Canadian actor Diego Matamoros and his co-creators and designers.
CRASH - Ford Foundation Studio Theatre
After the loss of a loved one, a woman must face the shattering memories of a past trauma. CRASH by Pamela Mala Sinha is the fractured unraveling of memory; blending projections, myth, and dance into a riveting narrative about family, faith and love.
True North: a Concert of Canada - The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre
Soulpepper concerts are multi-artist, multi-disciplinary, highly theatrical docu-musicals!
Opening on Canada’s 150th Birthday (July 1, 2017) this concert will use internationally -beloved Canadian songs as the spine of an examination into the values of a nation.
The Secret Chord: A Tribute - The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
The artists of Soulpepper honor fellow Canadian Leonard Cohen whose poetry and music intoxicated the world.
New York – The Melting Pot - The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre
This concert is a love letter from Toronto’s artists to the city of New York. It traces the contributions of immigrant cultures to the creation of the soundtrack of the 20th century right here in Manhattan.
