2022 Theatre Festival

Play the Fool Festival

Sept 22-25, 2022

After a 2-year online-only odyssey, we’re thrilled to plan to be live & in-person for 2022!

Please note that all Play the Fool staff, artists, volunteers and patrons are subject to these COVID mitigation policies, which include vaccination and masking at all in-person events.

Canadian physical performers, clowns, and comedic character actors gather at Play the Fool Theatre Festival, Edmonton’s festival of clown and physical comedy. Held in historic Old Strathcona at the ATB Financial Arts Barns, the 2022 festival will bring together seasoned and emerging local and national clown and physical theatre artists for four days of performances that embrace risk, exploration, and play.

Mark your calendars, and we’ll see you in September!
