Ontario is out of water and a pair of bandits search for their last hope - a water diviner by the name of Penn. Stories say she can crack the world like a coconut and make water bubble to the surface with nothing but her hands. But the bandits aren't the only ones hunting her down. And what if there's nothing left for Penn to divine? An all woman cast in Natalie Frijia's post-apocalyptic wild west asks how we would survive in world without water. Would we turn to community... or to revenge?

Sing For Your Supper June 5th
7:00 PM19:00

Sing For Your Supper June 5th

On the first (sometimes 2nd) Monday of every month, Sing for your Supper gives playwrights and actors–even those with little to no experience–a chance to meet each other, share ideas and workshop new scripts before an audience of their peers.

Script submissions will be selected over the preceding month by our tireless curator, Marissa Heintzman, and the evening will be hosted by our incomparable hosts, Kat Letwin and Cam Wyllie.

All are welcome to participate. FREE ADMISSION.

Monday, June 5th
Location TBA

Wednesday, May 31st
The scripts will then receive a live workshop by Toronto talent on a first come first serve basis.

Hopeful performers are asked to arrive one hour prior the 8 pm curtain. This allows everyone enough time to get acquainted with the script and introduce themselves to one and other in a very casual, collaborative and creative environment. This cold reading series is also a unique opportunity for writers to have their work read in a new light, with no pressure or expectations.

Patrons are then encouraged to interact with the writers, actors, fellow audience members and guest moderators from the Toronto theatre community where they can then discuss, face to face, what they experienced.
