Synopsis >

Showered with awards and critical acclaim, this darkly comic Canadian series follows the fortunes of a dysfunctional Shakespearean theatre troup, exposing the high drama, scorching battles, and artistic miracles that happen behind the scenes. Paul Gross (Due South) stars as washed-up actor Geoffrey Tennant, who returns to the New Burbage Theatre--the site of his own acting triumph and career-ending meltdown--to assume the artistic directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles. Believing that theatre is meant to provoke not anesthetize, Geoffrey takes on the suits who want to turn the festival into a theme park, a director who runs amuck with Hamlet, and his own demons, including Oliver--who returns to haunt him. Also starring Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers, The Notebook), Mark McKinney (Kids in the Hall), and Don McKellar (Childstar).
