THEATRE: The Theatre Elusive—a group that aims to explore equality, gender, and sexual identity through theatre—presents one of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Antony and Cleopatra. Witness the manipulation, sex, politics, and devotion behind this infamous power couple, along with Antony’s battles with Octavius that threaten to tear the lovers apart. Directed by Rosanna Saracino, starring Gillian English, William MacGregor and Spencer Robson. Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (12 Alexander Street), 8 p.m., $20—25.

TRIVIA: Are you full of useless information? Constantly spewing unsolicited facts about everything from chewing gum to manta rays? Well, friend, you need to check out Toronto Geek Trivia. Meet like-minded geeks, show off your pop culture prowess, or maybe just reassure yourself that all those hours spent on the internet weren’t for naught. Be ready to answer questions concerning anything from movies and music to video games and comics. The Charlotte Room (19 Charlotte Street), 8 p.m., FREE.

VOICES OF DISSENT: Voice of Industry was once a weekly labour newspaper that published articles and poetry by working women during the Industrial Revolution. Though available online since 2008, a recent site overhaul has made the paper accessible to a broader audience. To celebrate the relaunch, Jim Stanford (Canadian Auto Workers Union), Bryan Palmer (Professor of Labour History), and Fay Farady (Labour, Human Rights and Constitutional Lawyer) will gather tonight to say a few words. There will also be performances by Sean Morley Dixon, The Voice of Industry Choir, and more. Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West), 8—11 p.m., FREE.
