Trending in Theatre This Week: the best of the SummerWorks festival


Published:

Fierce Monsters

We don’t know what’s more terrifying about Rebecca Buttigieg’s play: the thought of an 800 man stampede, or the two women who have to first survive it and then an intruder in 1858 British Columbia. 
Lower Ossington Theatre, Aug. 10-19


Breathe for Me — A Finely Aged Loved Story

In a plot that hints at a Grey Gardens-esque theme, best friends Edna and Edith have lived together for over 50 years in a daily routine that’s suddenly threatened when a strange idea is put on the table, challenging their lifelong friendship.
Factory Theatre Mainspace, Aug. 9-18


Ally & Kev

In Toronto playwright Jason Maghanoy’s latest offering (he’s been an exciting fixture on the Toronto theatre festival circuit for a few years now),  Ally and Kevin, brother and sister, have broken into someone’s house and now they’re waiting for his return. Spooky.
Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace, Aug. 9-18


I, Animal

Things get downright weird and tragic in playwright-extraordinare Daniel MacIvor’s newest project, which features three characters’ tales of love and loss, including a ruined vacation and a dead cat.
Factory Theatre Mainspace, August 9-19


Dare Night: Lockdown

In this Live Art Series, The Torontonians (along with the Mammalian Diving Reflex) present a horrifying sleepover called Dare Night: Lockdown. It goes down at the Gladstone for fifteen frightening hours, complete with a scary pizza dinner that apparently “EATS YOU” and some pretty freaking scary ghost stories. Survivors get to partake in the Mourning Wiener Feast.
Gladstone Hotel, Aug. 10
