Nov 7- Nov 13: Toby Malone
Focus: " I currently have several projects under development; in late November I am coordinating The Word Festival, a multi-disciplinary event based around the 1611 publication of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' and the King James Bible, so I will be speaking to many of the festival's projects, including a world premiere staged reading of the popular 'Kill Shakespeare' graphic novels. Soulpepper also recently announced its 2012 season, and I will check in on my department's research for the coming year."
