Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"To be or not to be, that is the question, eh?" A hit on the Sundance Channel, this quirky Canadian series has been compared to Six Feet Under. Follow the outrageous fortunes of a dysfunctional Shakespearean theatre troupe as it struggles with artistic egos and conspiratorial board members. Paul Gross (Due South) and Mark McKinney (Kids in the Hall) lead the cast.

I work at a regional theater in the US. And it's just as delightful and painful and gratifying as you see here. It's the real deal, and speaks to the non-theater-inclined as well. Like a Canadian OFFICE. With more ghosts and costumes.

One of the funnier and touching shows I've ever seen. I appreciate a show that figures I'm intelligent enough not to have a point shoved in my face. I also find it satisfying to watch a show that illustrates the ever-oxymoronic complexities of life.

"Slings & Arrows" never generated much buzz, but it is one of the smartest, best acted, and most observant shows of the last several years. Set at a struggling Canadian Shakespeare company, each of the three seasons is centered around one major play ("Macbeth," "King Lear") and the drama the surrounds the productions (breakdowns, affairs, drugs). Those with a background in drama/literature will probably appreciate it even more. Guest stars include Rachel McAdams & Sarah Polley.
