Past productions at UNB

Theatre UNB’s production of Undiscovered Country by Tom Stoppard

Theatre has a long and storied history at UNB, stretching back many decades. The UNB Drama Society staged plays for many years until drama became an academic discipline with its own classes in the 1970s.

Theatre UNB’s main stage productions run from Shakespeare to modern classics and acclaimed contemporary plays, with a special emphasis on works by some of Canada’s finest playwrights. A snapshot of our seasons since 2000 showcases the type of shows you can expect to participate in and see at Theatre UNB.
