Raise the Stakes, founded in 2012, is Montreal's premiere classical theatre ensemble. We are breaking down the fourth wall and bringing back the visceral connection with our audience - up close and personal, with live soundtrack, combining the traditional approaches to language learned under Sir Peter Hall founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company to our techniques of moment-to-moment spontaneity and improvisation. Other company training and experience include the RADA, LAMDA, Kingston University London, Concordia, John Abbott and the Dawson Professional Theatre Program.

Past productions include Macbeth (January 2016), Fat Man Dancing (co-production August 2015), The Tavernac (co-production January 2015), Much Ado About Nothing (co-produced with Jubilee Theatre, November 2014), The Bald Soprano (February 2014), Seduced (November 2013), LUNDUNTOWN by Alain Mercieca (July 2013), Suddenly Last Summer (March 2013), True West (December 2012), Salt Water Moon (August 2012).
