This Week in Theatre: August 15-22

Well now that the season and festivals have ended, theatre is mostly going to be very quiet over the next few weeks here in the city. There are festivals like Stratford , Shaw and Blyth running but you'll need a car and perhaps a hotel to really take a crack at those. Here are a couple shorter drive distance shows and one that's actually subway accessible.

District of Centuries - is an urban fable about the saddest man in the world, an epic struggle is unleashed between hope and despair, between action and silence. Runs to August 25, No Sunday show. At the Walmer Centre Theatre - 188 Lowther Ave.

Salt Water Moon - Resurgence Theatre's newest take (directed by David Ferry) on the David French classic based on his trilogy plays about the Mercer family. Jacob comes home from Toronto to small town Newfoundland and finds love with an old flame. Runs to Aug 19, Fairy Lake Park , Newmarket..

Hamilton Fringe Festival - Hamilton's version of the Fringe seems to be running strong on its third year. Runs to Aug 19.
