CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
FESITVAL OF EARLY DRAMA
JUNE 5 – 7 2015
Poculi Ludique Societas (PLS), Toronto’s renowned medieval and renaissance players, continues its year-long celebration of 50 years of performance research practice at the University of Toronto with our FESTIVAL OF EARLY DRAMA (#FoED2015).
FoED2015 includes productions by 15 medieval and renaissance theatre groups from across North America. Helping us to celebrate will be university theatre groups that hail from New Orleans to Indiana, as well as the University of Western Ontario, Brock, and McMaster Universities, among others. PLS will also present our own production of Mankind, which is travelling to The Cloisters in New York City May 23 – 24, 2015 before returning to Toronto to headline our roster of productions.
