Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

The Lady Hamlet

The Stratford Festival’s Laboratory is tasked with experimenting with bold, boundary-pushing work. On Friday, June 28, the Lab hosts a free public reading of Sarah Schulman’s very funny script The Lady Hamlet, about two women who compete for both the role of Hamlet and Ophelia’s affections. Schulman is an AIDS historian and an icon of lesbian literature. The reading will feature both company members and guest actors, and will be directed by Nightwood Theatre’s Artistic Director, Andrea Donaldson.

Cost: Free

Location: Paul D. Fleck Marquee, Festival Theatre, Stratford, 55 Queen Street, Stratford
