Doc Wuthergloom is a mainstay of our Halloween round-ups, but he and his possessed puppets performs occasionally throughout the year. There’s a one-night-only, chill-your-blood edition of his Haunted Medicine Show taking place; the premium ticket price includes entry to a “Dime Museum of the Damned.”
Gillian English was at the New York Frigid Fringe Festival last year in Love in The Time of Time Machines, and it must have gone over well, because she’ll be returning this year—and once again, there will be a one-night-only preview/fundraiser for her show here in Toronto. Drag Queen Stole My Dress is her autobiographical account of a pre-emptive divorce and a Fringe tour theft, and how they’re linked. Written and performed by English, the show is directed by fellow Fringe veteran Chris Gibbs.
If Valentine’s went particularly well for you and your partner (or you and someone else, or just you), and you want to take things further—say, to group play, this could be the event for you. I’d Tap That is a adult “play party” hosted at Oasis Aqualounge, open to men and women (trans and cis) aged 19-35—all sexual orientations and gender identities are welcome. The evening will also double as a live sex shoot (in a sectioned-off area) for Spit Magazine—attendees interested in participating can contact the organizers and RSVP in advance.
