The World Shakespeare Festival (WSF) is a celebration of Shakespeare as the world’s playwright.
Located in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, we are North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Each season, we present a dozen or more productions in four distinctive venues. We produce classics, contemporary dramas and musicals, with special emphasis on the plays of Shakespeare.
The international Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival is one of the key events in European theatre, bringing together performances, workshops and meetings with artists from every corner of the world. The Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival showcases today’s most interesting theatrical trends inspired by the works of Shakespeare. Since 1997, it has been taking place annually with the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre (from 2008) and the Theatrum Gedanense Foundation as the main organisers of the event.
