I first went to the Stratford Festival of Canada when I was four years old. My parents took me to see a production of The Pirates of Penzance, starring Brent Carver. We sat in the front row, right behind the conductor. I was enthralled. And so began a life-long obsession with the theater.
I saw my first live performance of Shakespeare at the Stratford Festival, and since then have been going back annually. It's developed into something of an addiction. I have, so far, refused therapy for it.

I first started "documenting" the Stratford Festival after my visit there in 2013. Here are cartoons on Waiting for Godot, Measure for Measure, The Three Musketeers, Othello, Mary Stuart, Blithe Spirit , The Merchant of Venice, Romeo and Juliet, Fiddler on the Roof , and the joys of repertory theater.
