This summer, the Anglican Diocese of Quebec is proud to present a new theatre festival in the heart of Old Quebec. A troupe of eight talented young actors from around the province gathered in June to rehearse and perform five diverse productions in All Saints Chapel, next to the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity.
