This Week in Theatre: June 13-20


Hot! Hot! Hot!! So with weather like this why on earth would one want to go to the theatre????

Okay. I hear that. So do many of the major theatres in the city who are currently wrapping up their seasons. But Fringe is around the corner and since we're only a few weeks away we've got to look hard to find something, don't we? Fortunately there are a few crazy cats that are running their own games and taking a chance during this quiet time of year. So go ahead and give them their due.

Shift

A friend of mine says this one is well worth seeing. The website says the same. It also says that people can't wait to see Stuart Knight's next show. Who? Stuart Knight. I can't seem to get more details so the mystery is somewhat intriguing. The website claims the show will leave you speechless. Yay!!! Huh? Well, why not? Runs until June 21st at the Theatre Centre.

Slaw Festival

The Swearing Jar by Kate Hewlett; Bentley Burnout by Allison McWood; The Rub by Brent Barkley; Less Is More Miserables by RJ Fenton; Chew On This by Pierce Williams and Incompetent In Love by William McGill all premiere in this community festival. Runs to June 16th, Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre. Brought to you by the Cabbagetown Theatre Company.

Trapped Spaces

An evening of seven minute plays featuring short plays by Elizabeth Megson, Arthur M Jolly, Miranda Laurence, Lynn Snyder, Tom Sime and others. Runs to Jun 16th at the Alchemy Theatre. Theatre Inspirato.
