In today's Urban Planner: a reading at Rower's Pub; Trampoline Hall does cheesecake, hits, and the invisible; and Rare's remount at the Young Centre.
READING: This month’s edition of the Rower’s Pub Reading Series features three novelists—Knowlton Nash Fellow Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall, ReLit award-winning poet Dani Couture, and cultural journalist Peter Dube—plus “bonus” guest reader (and actual rower) Ken Murray. Victory Cafe (581 Markham Street), 7:30 p.m., FREE.
LECTURE: This month’s edition of Trampoline Hall, the long-running amateur lecture series (“amateur” in the sense that the chosen subjects must be things the lecturers are not professionals in) is curated by Becky Johnson and hosted (as always) by Misha Glouberman. It features artist and author Serena McCarroll on “Invisible Problems,” writer and comic Joel Buxton on “What Makes a Hit,” and conceptual artist Tara Bursey on “Cheesecake.” Very limited at-the-door tickets go on sale at 6:30 p.m. tonight. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), 8 p.m., $5.
THEATRE: A sold-out hit at last year’s Fringe Festival, Rare returns for a short run at the Young Centre. Featuring nine performers with Down syndrome, the play has given reviewers some difficulty, though audiences had no reservations during its first run. The Young Centre (50 Tank House Lane), 8 p.m., $15–$30.
