Don’t Look Back in Anger, But Love

Two indie remounts of now-classic Canadian / Torontonian plays focus on the comedic and poetic tribulations of true love, which never did run smooth.

All too often, Canadian plays are produced once, perhaps given a remount or two, than fade into obscurity. So it’s a pleasure to see two comedic classics, both written by Toronto women, both full of beautiful poetry and pratfalls, being staged by new generations of indie theatre artists.

Footage of the High Park Peacock on the Loose

A High Park Zoo peacock is just strutting around the neighbourhood, because why not.

Sometime this week, one of the High Park Zoo peacocks escaped from the west end attraction.

The peacock made its way towards Roncesvalles, perhaps to scope out a family-size rental dwelling.

The CBC reports that the peacock was spotted in the area on Thursday evening, but Animal Services has not yet had a chance to put it back in its forever home.

One good thing about a rogue peacock is that they’re fairly conspicuous, and it was quickly spotted nearby. YouTube user Nick Moses captured a video of a community enthralled with their new neighbour, and they vainly tried their best to guide it while it chilled on local roofs.

We get you, High Park Peacock. We really do.

In the news: People aren't buying Pan Am Games tickets at a terribly enthusiastic rate (to say the least), and a petition to prevent the rapper Action Bronson from playing Yonge and Dundas Square during NxNE might actually have worked. But it also might not have. Plus, Captain John's seafood restaurant boat is floating off to where all good boats end up as they round the circle of boatlife...the scrap yard.
