The Motorcycle Monologues (and accompanying R&R Rally) create an entirely unique and innovative experience by fusing together three seemingly disparate elements: motorcycling, Shakespeare and documentary storytelling. Together, they weave a compelling narrative about the journey to regain what we’ve lost during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Accompanying Driftwood’s founding Artistic Director Jeremy Smith on his epic journey, each Motorcycle Monologues episode will feature or highlight: a different location from among Driftwood’s 25 touring locations in the province; a unique and picturesque stretch of road; interviews with prominent Ontario-based Driftwood artists about their memories presenting theatre across Ontario; a local Ontario business or attraction; and of course, performance of some Shakespeare monologues to tie it all together.
The Motorcycle Monologues will air Fridays weekly on YouTube beginning in August.
