Theatre­go­ers are of­ten fas­ci­nated with what goes on be­hind the scenes, whether it’s in the wings or in the cre­ation of a play.

The Show Must Go On looks at the not al­ways ju­ve­nile go­ings-on dur­ing the run of a tour­ing chil­dren’s show (from July 5 at George Ig­nati­eff), while Strolling Player tracks the life and work of ac­tor Richard Wil­lis (from July 3 at Tar­ragon Ex­tra Space).

In Gen­e­sis & Other Sto­ries (pic­tured), meta-the­atre and slap­stick blend in the play-within-a-play stag­ing of a su­per-sexed, 60s ver­sion of the Adam and Eve story (from July 3 at Trin­ity St. Paul’s, 427 Bloor West). For an even more inside look at the world of the­atre, Fuck Shake­speare al­lows you to follow an au­thor into the world of the play he’s cre­at­ing, where he meets Shake­speare’s char­ac­ters Des­de­mona and Hermione (from July 4 at Fac­tory Mainspace).
