THEATRE | After Miss Julie
Red One Theatre's updated verious of August Strindberg's (once) shocking Miss Julie takes the play, set in post war England of 1945, to more overtly sexual territory, but the story of the seduction of the family's valet by the title character (or does the seduction run the other way round?) remains. Can you handle the sexual tension? The Storefront Theatre (955 Bloor Street West), Thursday, November 14 - Saturday, November 30, Tues - Sat 8:00pm & 2:00pm, $10 - $20

MUSIC | Not Dead Yet Fest
Not Dead Yet is an annual DIY punk and hardcore festival run by Toronto promoters Stuck in the City. This year Limp Wrist, Iron Age, Left for Dead, Mind Eraser, and The Boston Strangler are among the headliners, and the fest will take place at Hard Luck, Nocturne, Sneaky Dee's, Soybomb HQ, and Wrongbar. It's gonna get loud. All shows are all ages and the full line up is here. November 14 - 17, all shows all ages, various venues and prices (tonight: Sneaky Dee's (431 College St), 8pm, $12)


FILM | Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival
This ongoing festival, a non-profit, annual event, is the largest of its kind in Canada and was founded back in 1997, showcasing the best of modern cinema from South Asia and its diaspora. This evening's opening gala centres on Bombay Talkies, and celebrates a century of Indian motion pictures and the great minds behind them, with four short films being shown. An after-party at Empire Lounge in Yorkville closes this first evening out with a bang. Read our must-see film picks here. Until November 16th. Various Venues and prices.

THEATRE | Moss Park
Time is running out to see Moss Park. A follow up to Tough!, George F. Walker revisits his characters Bobby and Tina in Moss Park. This time around, the couple have a baby to take care of, which makes the struggle to survive above the poverty line all the more difficult. The play is a contemporary look at the challenges facing Canadian families when all hope seems lost. Graeme McComb and Haley McGee are the young couple looking towards an uncertain future. Read our review here. Until November 16, Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson Ave,) various showtimes, $20-$32
