Fodor's Review

From July through early September, actors perform works by the Bard and others in Point Pleasant Park, at the southern end of the Halifax peninsula. The natural setting—dark woods, rocky shore, and ruins of fortifications—provides a dramatic backdrop. Performances take place from Tuesday through Friday at 7 pm, and on weekends at 1 pm (weather permitting) and you can arrive up to two hours before to secure a good spot.
