Description

Kitchen Sink Drama is the first Toronto Fringe play in Leslieville! Your $13 ticket to Kitchen Sink Drama includes four short plays & a serving of snacks from our tasty sponsors, including unique gourmet creations from CXBO Chocolate Four plays in a kitchen! Five playwrights created brand new work to perform in a kitchen in Leslieville. Writers were given a unique flavour - Salty, Bitter, Umami, Sweet - to correspond with the Soup, Salad, Main, and Dessert course of a meal. The pieces they created are strange, powerful meditations on love, betrayal, grief and revenge. They are magical, delicious and proudly queer. The Salty Soup course is the first play, Siren, by award-winning playwright Natalie Kaye (Mood Swings, Fringe 2016), in which a scullery maid makes dinner and rails against the constraints of her oppressive employment, vowing to storm the seas as a blood-thirsty pirate. The Bitter Salad course, Bitter Hearts, grapples with the ethics of veganism while relishing the inescapable bitterness of first love’s betrayal. The Umami Main course, Savour, directed by Sandra Cardinal (Sizzle & Spin, Fringe 2015) and starring Fringe veteran and Equity member Andrea Irwin (False Start, Fringe 2016 & Hogtown, 2017), Kelly-Marie McKenna (If We Were Birds, York U), and Mladen Obradović (A Flea in Her Ear, Fringe 2017), is a delectable romance about fairies, breakups, yearning, alienation, magic and carpe diem. The Sweet Dessert course is A Trifle, written by award-winning playwright Nina Kaye (Death Meets Harlequin, Fringe 2017) and directed by Collette Radau (Midnight Toronto, Rhubarb 2017). The queer comedy about new love, cake, and how to connect, is a sweet, but not too saccharine, way to end the night.
