Repercussion Theatre’s mission is to deliver professional, classically based, visually dynamic theatre that is accessible to all, regardless of income, culture, language, age or education. It is best known for its open-air Shakespeare-in-the-Park summer tour, in Montreal. Every summer, since 1988, roughly 10,000 people have gathered in parks in and around the city, to delight in the language of the Bard. Audiences are comprised of all ages and all economic backgrounds not only because the shows are offered free of charge but also because the outdoor touring program moves from park to park, making it accessible to everyone.
