Event Notes

CLICK BUSH TRAIN BUG: A Fable for Twelve
By Camille Inston
Directed by Christina Pastor

A melodramatic high school apocalypse play. A runaway mutt. A band of estranged friends haunted by strange apparitions. And an untimely brush with a high speed locomotive. It’s New Year’s Eve in Hamilton, Ontario, and the Year 2000 is just around the corner. Strung together by a collage of fortuitous events in the months prior to Y2K, twelve personalities navigate the unique juncture between adolescence and adulthood in a world marked by burgeoning internet culture, media saturation, techno-scares, and social change, all narrated by an omnipotent carp- infested marsh. CLICK BUSH TRAIN BUG is a new play about young adults coming of age on the brink of perceived disaster— and tracing their fears, desires, dreams from one epoch into the next.

Eventually, We Land,
By Makram Ayache
Directed by Rinchen Dolma

An anthology play that spans the timeline of the early days of the AIDS epidemic to the contemporary lived realities of people living with HIV today in Toronto. The stories mostly explores the often underexpressed realities of how women and femme people were impacted and continue to be impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. At its core, "Eventually, We Land," is a reckoning with a turbulent past that springs us toward a necessary action of queer resilience, survival, and thrival today.
