L. W. Conolly Theatre Archives

This gallery illustrates the fascinating ongoing relationship Shakespeare has with Canadian theatrical culture via documents and objects from the L.W. Conolly Theatre Archives at the University of Guelph, the largest theatrical archive in Canada. These objects include theatre props, such as Yorick’s skull from a 1981 Hamlet production, set models and maquettes, including a 1986 production of Romeo and Juliet, and a wide array of posters and costume designs. The objects in evidence here give a small glimpse into the extraordinary range of holdings kept in the archives that are related to Shakespeare and Canada, and highlight the individual contributions of diverse playwrights, directors, designers, and actors from across the country.
