Foul Play

Venue 5 Club SAW

Mac is the star quarterback; Beth is his cheerleader girlfriend; and Duffy is his main dude. Senior year is going to be EPIC. That is until Mac and Duffy get their tarot cards read by the weird goth chicks under the bleachers. After that, high school would never be the same…

Generic Male – Just What We Need, Another Show About Men

Venue 1 – Arts Court Theatre

The Generic Males’ multi-award-winning Off-Broadway show returns to give us just what we need: another god-damn show about men. It’s fathers & sons, it’s war & death. It takes us into the beating heart of the failing patriarchy as it descends into acrobatic absurdity…

The key to the future is literally in your hands. You have an hour. Go.


Venue 6 - BYOV - Atelier

A unique true pandemic story of comedy and not. Lockdown strands me on the remote holy paradise beach of Gokarna in India. For two long years.

Venue 5 Club SAW

A hilarious autobiography of some gay girl from Toronto. “Part stand-up, part personal storytelling, Piccinin stands behind a mic and tells us her coming out stories (yes, there’s more than one). Sharply observed, tightly delivered—and finding laughter in the pain—for an entertaining and insightful, out and proud ride.” — Cate McKim, Life with More Cowbell…
