Admission is free each night but donations are encouraged at the door with proceeds going to different charities chosen by the cast of each play. Seating is limited; reserve a spot on the guest list in advance by visiting www.picatic.com and selecting the play.
Sixteen Toronto playwrights and actors will perform six plays over the span of five days. The featured plays include The Further Adventures of Antoine Feval, Supperfesta, 8th Day, Of Mice and Morroand Jasp, and Fleece & Flesh: My Big Fat German Puppet Show with Rooster Kane’s Curio Emporium, all of which have had previous runs during the Toronto Fringe Festival and on other stages in the city.
After each production, the actors and writers will speak with the audience and answer questions about the play and the process involved in putting on a theatrical production. Each production will be filmed in front of a live audience and behind the scenes shots will be filmed leading up to each night. The entire theatrical experience, each play and interactive q+a will be available on Bell Local and the Bell Local website.
