MONTREAL — If you thought you saw Seana McKenna passing by in Montreal over the past couple of weeks, you may have been right.

The woman who starred as Queen Elizabeth I in Mary Stuart at the Stratford Festival last season has been teaching at the National Theatre School.

On Tuesday at 6 p.m., she will give a public talk at McGill University’s Moot Court titled Shakespeare in 3D: An Actor’s Point of View. It’s the annual Shakespeare Lecture presented by the Friends of McGill Library and the Stratford Festival. (Unfortunately, the free event is fully booked.)
