Hot Date: Brand New Theatre Fest

Jan. 26 to Feb. 6. If you like your theatre with a bit of edge, then the undercurrents festival by the Great Canadian Theatre Company is for you. Six original plays with a limited four-show run are on the bill, all by some of Canada’s most boundary-pushing theatre creators. From the story of a 1930s stage queen to the tale of a pregnant man, these plays offer sharp commentary, moving narrative, and offbeat protagonists in a fest that’s anything but mainstream.
