Drama, comedy, puppets: Our 2018 lineup has something for everyone

UPDATE (Wed., Oct. 17): We are sorry to report that troupes from two countries have been denied travel documents to enter Canada. The groups from China and the Central African Republic will not be participating in this year’s festival. We have scheduled a replacement show on Sun., Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. for the Chinese troupe. If you have tickets for that show, you can hold on to your tickets and use them for the new show. Or you can exchange those tickets for another show.

We have no replacement for the play from the Central African Republic. If you have tickets for that show, you may exchange them for another performance. Or, you can use your tickets to the China or Central African Republic shows to attend all of our coffee critiques or our social events on Friday or Saturday night at the Liverpool Curling Club. Please contact the Astor Theatre box office at 902-354-5250 or visit the box office to make the change. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with these last-minute developments. (Because of the international nature of our festival, the schedule and lineup are subject to change, depending on individual troupe visa applications and travel issues.)

The 2018 Liverpool International Theatre Festival will still feature many compelling plays from around the world, including a Mexican play featuring puppets with a political message, a Bengali retelling of the Moliere classic The Miser and a sweet, affecting non-verbal play from Liverpool’s own Winds of Change. 

Opening night is Thurs., Oct. 18. The festival runs to Sun., Oct. 21. All plays are at the Astor Theatre in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

Here is a quick look at each of the plays we are pleased to bring you this year. For tickets and all-access passes, visit the Ticketpro link here, or call the Astor Theatre box office at 902-354-5250.
