As film processing becomes a thing of the past, the manufacturing plants and industrial darkrooms it once required have become inevitably obsolete. With a certain sense of irony, one photographer has travelled across the world to document these abandoned buildings. “Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness” both commemorates a vanishing medium and celebrates a newer one. Check out the exhibit during the opening reception, or any time before April 13.

Glendon College presents the second stage production to come out of its newly formed drama club, Lionheart Productions Coeur de Lion.

  • Tarragon Theatre (30 Bridgman Avenue)
  • 8 p.m.

In Tarragon Theatre’s current mainstage production, Flesh and Other Fragments of Love, there are both a marriage and a body on the rocks, and the prognosis isn’t good for either of them. While the human figure appears pale, cold, and lifeless, the marriage is slightly more alive, and the play chronicles its last dying breaths. Surprisingly, though, the young female cadaver is by far the more interesting of the two.
