Or Not To Be

If you knew your time was almost up, what would you do?

If you’re an actor, like Ben, you might choose to perform Hamlet. Why? Or Not To Be, a new play by Andrew Batten, explores this fundamental question – what is the role of a lifetime? Why, given that we all have a limited time on earth, do some people choose to spend their lives making and/or experiencing art? And how do we love, help, enjoy and hang on to one another, knowing that one day we will have to say goodbye?

Directed by Julia Haist, and featuring Shawn Desouza-Coelho, Andrew Robinson, and Karen Scobie, the play opens January 11 and runs to January 28 at the Red Sandcastle Theatre, 922 Queen St. E. Tickets are $20 ($15 for Seniors, Students and Arts Workers) and are available through the box office at 416-845-9411 or through Snapd Tix at https://beachdanforth.snapd.com/events/view/1108027.

Or Not To Be is produced by Glass Hammer Productions.
