Nicholas Eddie (two-time Dora award winner) brings to life a darkly comic cabaret following a forlorn protagonist as he duly asks the ultimate question: “what the fuck?”. ONE NIGHT ONLY is an electric exploration on happiness, how we get there, and what it means to keep going. Like a rare steak, just raw enough to make you nervous, but so irresistibly peppered with refreshing, unique wit and sardonic humour, you can’t stop eating.

Critics rave about Nicholas Eddie:

“Focused, nimble and endlessly watchable” -Glenn Sumi, NowToronto

“Nick Eddie is over six feet tall and the other actors are shorter” -Lynn Slotkin, Slotkin Letter

  1. I have PTSD and the emotional manipulation of the trigger warnings left me feeling angry. Don’t tell me that a gun box is empty (during the tw) and then pull a gun out. The show was interesting, but using TWs to manipulate your audience is extremely poor form.

  2. Incredibly powerful piece about the worthiness of life lived and the danger of meaning.

    This show was worrying – as another commenter notes, there’s a false content warning and tone set at the beginning of the show. It sets up a powerful turn but some people will find it painful so it’s worth softening that blow.

    Eddie is a strong performer and is believable even through rapid changes and quick, fleeting emotions. Worth watching for craft and for story.
