Toronto: Bygone Theatre cancels its 2020/21 season
Sunday, November 22, 2020
COVID-19 has thrown a wrench in many of our plans these past few months. Live performance companies have been hit especially hard, and many of us have had to make some tough decisions.
After much thought and deliberation, we have decided to take a hiatus for the 2020/2021 season, rather than try to offer something that would not only be below our standard, but that could potentially risk those involved, if the pandemic has not been resolved by the spring.
While this should have been Bygone’s 9th season, we have long had big things planned for our 10th, and those require a successful 9th to pull off. So while we will pop up sometimes with relevant articles, and to share the success of our friends and peers, this season we will not have any performances, and will instead work on our other initiatives that can be done safely from home, as we work to prepare for our 9th season that will now happen in 2021/22.
So we’re not gone - just pressing pause. Thank you to everyone for your support, we look forward to seeing you again when things settle down.
Stay safe, stay happy, wear a mask.
We’ll see you next year.
- Emily Dix Bygone Theatre Artistic Executive Director
