Radar: Hatch, Jesus Chrysler, The Return of Gloria Badcock, Rio Breaks PWYC Movie

Have an idea that will solve a problem for the city or accomplish a task by making it simpler? Want to hear feedback on an idea-in-progress? Hatch is an event for Torontonians with ideas--any kind of ideas--that need to be shared in order to improve communities and lives. Face-to-face crowdsourcing is the idea behind this evening of discussion, where guests will be invited to share their ideas, problems or opportunities with the group in exchange for collaborative efforts, advice and action. No idea is too small (or too big) and all are welcome to attend.
SUPERMARKET (268 Augusta Avenue) 7PM Free

THEATRE | Jesus Chrysler
Local history comes to life onstage in Jesus Chrysler, a work by Dora Award-winning playwright Tara Beagan that premieres tonight at Theatre Passe Muraille. Revolving around the lives of Toronto activist and theatre director Eugenia "Jim" Watts and poet Dorothy Livesay as they maneuver relationships, politics and art, this Michael Wheeler-directed piece stars Margaret Evans and Aviva Armour-Ostroff as these Canadian pioneers of women's literature, theatre and political involvement. The performance will run until December 11th.
Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson Avenue) 7PM $15-$30
