OPENINGS

These are the shows that are opening in Toronto the week of March 6, 2017.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8


THE MILLENNIAL MALCONTENT, Tarragon Theatre

Moxy is fed up with the constraints of domesticity, and longing for some action. Her long-suffering husband Johnny has decided that enough is enough and contemplates having an affair. A raucous exploration of the social posing, sexual frankness and emotional minefield of the Millennial generation.

At Tarragon Theatre, closes April 9

THURSDAY, MARCH 9


PROOF, Theatre Unblocked

A young woman put her academic career on hold to look after her father, a once-famous mathematician. Now that he no longer needs her care, she considers returning to mathematics herself, but is haunted by the question: how much of her father’s madness—or genius—has she inherited?

At Red Sandcastle Theatre, closes March 19

FRIDAY, MARCH 10


THE MAN WHO MARRIED HIMSELF, Toronto Masque Theatre

Unwilling to marry a woman, a man fashions a lover from his own left side. He’s enraptured by her perfect beauty—a mirror of his own—until he discovers that this new woman longs for freedom and wildly desires another.

At Streetcar Crowsnest, closes March 11

SATURDAY, MARCH 11


CAGE, Soulpepper

A stage, any stage, even the one within our mind, is a cage… that defines, limits, and reveals. Inspired by apes, Zen Buddhism, and the ideas of avant-garde composer John Cage, this is an experiential meditation on time, space, memory, and the human animal.

At the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, closes March 25

A surreal love story about Roger, the murderer of two willing victims who respond to his ad on a webpage, and Amy, a woman he meets soon afterwards in a bar.

OF HUMAN BONDAGE, Soulpepper

When Philip meets Mildred, a disarming tea-shop waitress, he finds his yearning for art and experience consumed by his intense attraction to her. A grand story of lust, unrequited love, and the pursuit of beauty.

At the Young Centre for the Performing Arts

SUNDAY, MARCH 12


RADIANT VERMIN, Dirty Talk

Sweet, young newly-weds Jill and Ollie would like to tell you all about their home… their dream home. How they got it and how they… renovated it! You may find what they did quite… horrible. You may even say… shocking.

At 167 Augusta Avenue

SMYTH / WILLIAMS, One Little Goat Theatre Company

An unconventional staging of the police interview of sado-sexual serial killer Russell Williams, confronting the attitudes and norms that enable violence against women and challenging the conditions that support war.
