The Other Paris

Ghost Tower Theatre Company is pleased to present THE OTHER PARIS, a one act dark comedy horror play written by Oliver Pitschner and co directed by Pitschner and Bethany Joy Radford. It's 2003 in Paris, Ontario and siblings Peter and Fox are back in their hometown to help pack up their childhood home following the death of their mother. While packing, they make an unsavoury discovery: their childhood cat, also named Paris, has been kept on ice in their deep freezer for the past 9 years. Peter and Fox embark on a journey to bury their pet - and put some other things to rest in the process. The following tale involves a road trip, a wisecracking best friend, a hitchhiking teenage witch, a ghostly mother, and an evil priest hunting them all on behalf of a dark entity feeding on lost souls. THE OTHER PARIS is a surreal ode to small Ontario towns, fractured families, trans identity, and religious guilt put on by a theatre company producing new queer horror work in Toronto.

Trigger Warnings: THE OTHER PARIS, while comedic, is a horror play containing troubling themes and elements such as death, violence, mentions of suicide, religious cult imagery, supernatural horror, transphobia, a gunshot, sudden sound cues, coloured and sudden lighting changes. Please take care.

Accessibility Note: The Red Sandcastle Theatre has a ramp at their Queen Street entrance, with a manual door. They also have the ability to remove chairs to make way for wheelchairs in the audience. Their first floor unisex washroom is also wheelchair compatible. Please reach out to Oliver at if you use a wheelchair so we can reserve a free space in the audience for you. Thanks!
