Duly Quoted: David Soknacki, on Why Torontonians Shouldn’t Vote Strategically

“I think Rob Ford is pretty capable of ruining his own chances, don’t you? I think the people of Toronto should support whoever best fits their criteria for an ideal mayor.

The Trial of Ken Gass

Playwright Bobby Del Rio was inspired to write The Trial of Ken Gass, a Kafkaesque look at a man’s encounter with an officious bureaucrat, by the ousting of Factory Theatre’s artistic director by its board of directors (who earned themselves a place in our Villains roster in 2012). The play is less interested in the […]

Historicist: “Varsity in Ruins”

There was excitement in the air at University College on Valentine’s Day, 1890, and it wasn’t due to Cupid’s arrows.

For decades, the Literary and Scientific Society of University […]
