The history of theatre goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's GrouponLive deal: for $32, you get two adult-admission tickets to the Blyth Festival, whose ongoing season lasts until August 27 (a $64 value before fees, or up to a $68 value including all handling fees). Review the schedule for a list of upcoming performances.
The Blyth Festival, set in the rural village of Blyth, produces solely Canadian plays that touch on the shared experiences of local Ontarians. Blyth Memorial Community Hall, an intimate theatre with a 444-person capacity, hosts a diverse sampling of plays from within its charming brick edifice. Whether forcefully clicking ruby slippers throughout the six nostalgic vignettes of Hometown or pondering the realities of romance during the bittersweet love story Rope’s End, onlookers will uncover familiar subject matter explored in surprising ways. Audiences praise the performances for capturing the experiences of their day-to-day lives, instead of reeling back in terror from plays performed by their evil doppelgängers.
