The McGill Classics Play, generously supported by the McGill Department of History and Classical Studies John MacNaughton bequest fund, is a non-profit venture committed to giving Montreal university students a unique educational experience, while fostering cultural exchanges with our Montreal community around ancient texts. We offer free shows and free workshops open to the community, and we bring in guest speakers for public lectures on Classical drama and performance. Any support you can give in helping us continue this kind of programming is so appreciated. You can donate directly to the McGill Classics Play here, and you will automatically receive a tax receipt for your donation. Thank you for supporting the McGill Classics Play!
In acknowledging our presence on Tiohtià:ke, the un-ceded territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, the 2022 production of Metamorphoses will also be raising funds for and donating a portion of our revenues to the Montreal Native Women's Shelter. You can donate to them here! Given current events, and the themes of our production, we will also be donating to AGIR Montreal, supporting queer refugees. You can donate to them here!
