Dancing With Rage

8:00pm. Single Tickets: $59, $64, $69. Subscribe from $44.75. Written and Performed by Mary Walsh | Directed by Andy Jones. Canadian actress, comedienne and social activist Mary Walsh, famous for her role in This Hour Has 22 Minutes, now unleashes her rage to do battle on a grand scale. A woman, who starts to go blind, finally starts to see. A mother, who travels across the country to find her lost child, rediscovers the child she has always had. A little girl, who is always searching for her place in the world, finds that she’s already there. Dancing With Rage follows all their stories while summoning the help of some familiar faces: Marg Delahuntey, a Warrior Princess, Dakey Dunn, Miss Eulalia Turpin, Mom Reardon, and Connie Bloor. By incorporating current events, Mary will navigate the rage brought on by pop culture, politics and capitalism while taking on her vibrant and constantly emerging characters.

Elgar Cello Concerto

The heartfelt Cello Concerto was English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s final great work. He poured into it all the passionate sorrow he felt at World War I’s destruction of Europe’s people and their ideals. With Symphony No. 7, Czech master Antonín Dvorák composed one of his most ambitious and magnificent works.

Come for: Peter Oundjian launches his tenth TSO season with a banquet of rich and powerfully emotional music. It includes the first of several pieces performed in the fall to honour the centenary of the revered English composer, Benjamin Britten.

Waiting for Godot

“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.

Mary Stuart, former Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in England, where her very existence poses a threat, both personal and political, to her Protestant cousin, Elizabeth I.
