The Shaw Festival’s cricket team had its final dress rehearsal this week in preparation for its annual fixture against the Stratford Festival on Aug. 26. The Shaw squad features actors from all the plays in the 2019 season. Pictured before this week’s game versus the Niagara Cricket Club is the team with captain Jeff Irving (seated, centre) and the captain from several previous years, Martin Happer (standing, third from left). Unfortunately, the designated opening bat, artistic director Tim Carroll, was away on business in the U.K. and no doubt gleaning some tips from the current England/Australia Ashes cricket series.
