Political turmoil reigns supreme in ACT II’s King John

ACT II Studio’s latest production takes on political turmoil in Shakespeare’s King John.

Directed by artistic director Vrenia Ivonoffski and designed by Alta-Louise Doyle, the play is set in an edgy post-apocalyptic world and examines the game of power politics. It offers a fascinating glimpse into political upheaval in a way that can only be compared to today’s current news stories of betrayal, shattered alliances and headstrong rulers.

Performances are Feb. 23 at 7 p.m., Feb. 24 at 2 and 7 p.m., and Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. in the Ryerson Student Theatre at 345 Yonge St. (enter on Yonge Street just north of Gould).

General admission tickets are $20. To purchase online, visit www.act2studio.ca. Tickets may also be purchased at the ACT II Studio office, Ryerson University, 297 Victoria St., Room 306. It’s best to call ahead at (416) 979-5000 Ext. 6297 to confirm office hours. Tickets may still be available at the door on day of performance (cheque or cash only). Advance purchase is recommended.
