“When we’re little no one tells us very much, so we imagine.”

Theaturtle in partnership with Shakespeare in Action is excited to present Alphonse in the Park, one of Toronto’s first outdoor theatrical plays of the new COVID-19 era. All safety protocols issued by the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto will be in place.

The Story

Alphonse is lost, walking along a country road, weaving an intricate web of stories, while everyone is searching for him: parents, friends, teachers, the police. What they find is the thing we often have to give up in order to grow up.
