Opening on July 17, 2014 for an exclusive six day residency at Toronto’s Aluna Theatre, A Ticket on the 4 is the most recent mixed media production by Toronto-based artist Jennifer Lindsay. Inspired by the poetry and prose of American writer Charles Bukowski, the show is a stark look the gritty world of horse racing.

Tickets go on sale July 3 through Uniiverse or at the door, with performances taking place on July 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 at 8pm and 10pm. This is with the exception of the opening night, which will feature a single performance at 8pm followed by a reading of works by Charles Bukowski as well as a talk with Jennifer and the cast.
