(Part One): A PHONE CALL begins November 4
From one of the world’s most acclaimed theatre companies, a performance in three parts about communication, distance, and reconnection
  WRITTEN & CREATED BY Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone
Toronto, ON – In a time when we’re accustomed to division and isolation is required, Canadian Stage is excited to launch the special year-long residency of celebrated New York City-based company 600 Highwayman, getting underway in early November.  Most recently in Toronto to present The Fever at the 2018 Luminato Festival, 600 Highwayman members Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone will be sharing three new works over the course of nine months that respond directly to the social impact of the pandemic, in the new triptych A Thousand Ways.
“As theatre-makers around the world explore the question of what theatre can be right now and what it will look like in the future, 600 Highwaymen bring an offering that mines theatre from the thrillingly simple and vulnerable space between two strangers,” says Canadian Stage Artistic Director Brendan Healy. “The company has been exploring this fertile space in innovative ways since their inception and we feel very fortunate to have them in residence with us at this time, to share this work with our audiences and to inspire our own artistic explorations.”
A quietly radical experiment, A Thousand Ways offers a chance to experience new ways of coming together in a three-part journey that takes place over several months, with each distinct installment presenting a new chance at making simple contact with a stranger.  Guided by a score of instructions, questions, prompts, and physical directives, people who have never met build a series of performances for one another. 

The first installment in the triptych is a Phone Call. Pick up the phone. Someone is on the line. You don’t know their name and you still won’t when the hour is over, but as you follow the recorded instructions, a portrait of your partner will emerge through fleeting moments of exposure.
In the future, on dates to-be-announced, An Encounter and An Assembly (parts 2 and 3) will be presented. The pieces have been created to work collectively or independently. You can attend only one or be a part of any two, or all three.

Thur. Nov. 5. Watch party from 6:30 pm.

The Medium: “While we cannot alter the shadows of things that have been. We can always alter how we perceive them now.”

Montréal, October 2020- Infinithéâtre remains committed to being the first English company to welcome audiences to live theatre in Montreal. (And with a world premiere to boot) The cast and production team have been rehearsing full on since September; everything is ready to go as soon as they get the green light. With that in mind, the company is thrilled to announce two livestreamed performances, absolutely free. These exclusive King of Canada presentations, with full production values, are on Friday, November 6 at 7:30pm and Sunday, November 8 at 2:00pm. Watch the show from the comfort of your own home…

In keeping with the US presidential elections—we had our very own oddball, questionable head of the country. This new play highlights the secret séances put on for PM Mackenzie King, while still in office! Paul Van Dyck’s witty and biting examination is a gem of a script serendipitously perfect for these difficult times. Brian Dooley mesmerizingly embodies King while Ellen David plays The Medium, along with conjuring 30 other characters, including 3 dogs all named Pat.

“When London theatres were closed by the plague, Shakespeare wrote some of his best plays. We at Infinithéâtre have pulled together, and with an inspired director, a brilliantly creative design team and actors at the top of their craft, have forged something truly special,” said Infinithéâtre Artistic Director, Guy Sprung. 

Infinithéâtre, in association with KIN Experience, presents, King of Canada
