A Taste of Shakespeare

A Taste of Shakespeare are award-winning under-an-hour adaptations of Shakespeare’s works. These fresh and relevant interpretations bring the viewer into the world of the plays, connecting them to the great stories, characters, themes, and language.

Created and produced by the mother/son team of DR. ADA CRANIFORD (who holds a Ph.D. in Renaissance Studies and wrote her doctoral thesis on Shakespeare) and writer/director/actor ERIC WEINTHAL, these productions feature unique actor/narrators who are in the scenes but then break out of character to address the viewer.

Featuring Canada’s greatest actors and designers, there are seven episodes and two “making ofs”.
