Love from Afar in Our Park! – September 11
A Company of Fools Presents “Love from Afar” in Champlain Park on September 11 2021, at 7 pm. Some details from their press release:
A Company of Fools returns to the Ottawa public outdoor stage with a (safe) bang this September.
Love From Afar: a collection of Shakespeare’s greatest hits woven together by the story of three friends discovering the meaning of love.
The 2021 tour is deliberately constrained to ensure adherence to safety restrictions, taking care to protect audience members and the Fools team. Unlike (previous) Fools’ summer shows, this will be a ticketed event with a strict audience limit. The pay-what-you-can policy stays, but this will be via an online ticketing platform or via phone. Cash or credit cards will not be accepted at the site.
