A Company of Fools has been delighting audiences all across Canada since 1990 as Ottawa’s original professional Shakespeare company. By combining physical theatre techniques of clown, mask and puppetry with classical text, we produce works written by, adapted from and inspired by William Shakespeare. Modelled after the rogue Elizabethan players that once entertained audiences outdoors and at the Globe Theatre, we have built a reputation as a highly physical troupe that produces original, interactive shows both indoors and out. Our award winning shows have toured across Canada from Halifax to Vancouver to Yellowknife and are acclaimed for being innovative, entertaining and accessible.
God bless A Company of Fools. Where would original theatre in Ottawa – that is to say original theatre that is wild,witty,clever,goofy,sometimes dumb and slightly mad – be without them?– The Ottawa Citizen
