Canada Day at Fort George

Bernard Shaw, born George Bernard Shaw, was an English playwright. As the author of more than 60 plays, many theatre aficionados have said that Bernard Shaw ranks second only to Shakespeare in terms of importance. Certainly, he counts among the most important playwrights of the 20th century. As such, it makes as much sense to celebrate his plays and contributions to theatre as it does to celebrate the Bard’s.
A Theatre-Lover’s Festival in Niagara on the Lake
Fortunately, the founders of the Shaw Festival have obliged ardent Shaw-lovers. This year the festival celebrates its 56th year of bringing Shaw’s work to Niagara on the Lake.
