Heads Up for the week of Jan. 22-28 2024

January 22-28, 2023.

The Tempest

by William Shakespeare

At Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.

Theatre Rusticle is presenting The Tempest  a subversive, joyful, physically robust framing of Shakespeare’s final play about the exiled magician who embarks on a complex journey of forgiveness through art. The company mixes movement, dance and subversion to tell their story.  It’s about power, love and how we make theatre.

The work of Theatre Rusticle is always fascinating.

There are only 10 performances so book tickets (416) 975-8555

Jan. 24-Feb. 4, 2024.

Two Noble Kinsmen

By William Shakepeare.

The Theatre Centre.

This rarely performed play is a collaboration between Shakespeare and John Fletcher. Michael Man and Emilio Vieira play the titular kinsmen. It’s a play of war, animosity, two friends who turn to enemies when they fall in love with the same woman.

It’s directed by James Wallis.


January 19-Feb. 3, 2024.

Better Living

By George F. Walker

At Alumnae Theatre.

Better Living is a black comedy that revolves around a family of women and the father who deserted them after trying to burn down their house. Seeing any play by George F. Walker in Toronto is rare, except for a production of Orphans for the Czar that played at Crow’s Theatre in 2022. Here is your chance to see why George F. Walker is one of this country’s finest playwrights.

The Laundry List

Al Green Theatre

The Laundry List tells the story of sisters Ruby and Zelda Benoit, who embark on a wild adventure to save their family’s bootlegging business. The sisters go incognito and infiltrate the world of Frankie’s Suds and Bubbles—a speakeasy cleverly disguised as a laundry. Shimmying their way into the chorus, they two-step their way through a madcap mix of jazz singers, rum runners, and a whole lot of dirty laundry.
