Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
by Edward Albee
Produced by XTasis Productions
Oct 3th - 6th & 10th - 13th, 2019
After a faculty get-together, George and Martha invite their younger counterparts Nick and Honey over for a night-cap that quickly spirals into an evening of wicked psychological games.
Albee's scorched-earth masterpiece has been riveting audiences for over 50 years and serves up some of the cruelest, most cutting dialogue in the history of western theatre.
Girl in the Box
by Danielle Spilchen & S.E. Grummett
Produced by Scantily Glad Theatre
Nov 14th - 17th & 21st - 24th, 2019
Award winning Scantily Glad Theatre returns to Live Five with an all-new original horror. In 1968, Ruth Eisemann-Schier made history as the first woman on the FBI’s Most Wanted List after she and her boyfriend kidnapped a millionaire’s daughter and held her ransom by burying her alive underground in a Plexiglas coffin. From the creators of SCUM: a manifesto, comes another look inside the mind of one of history’s most dangerous women. Inspired by true-crime podcasts, Girl in the Box twists the femme-fatale to deliver a horror that will bury itself under your skin.
Warnings: Violence, sexual content, strong language
by Sarah DeLappe
Produced by EvilStick Productions & Little Big Theatre
Jan 9th - 12th & 16th - 19th, 2020
A girls' indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their stretch circle nine girls question and navigate the world around them with a fierce and wide-eyed passion only a teenager can muster. This provocative play, nominated for 2017 Pulitzer Prize, captures the raw beauty of adolescence as these bright, vulnerable, goofy young women navigate the game, their lives, and a growing understanding of a complicated world.
"We are always the same age inside."
Warnings: Some strong language and mature content
Mine to Have: Sensuality and Circumstance
by The Other Ordinary Collective
Produced by Listen to Dis
Mar 19th - 22nd & 26th - 29th, 2020 (AT STUDIO 914)
Mine to Have is about personal quests for love, companionship, and intimacy in a world that consistently denies the political right to body autonomy. Combining live music, shadow projection, and traditional theatre making, this show will draw you in like a lover and leave you wanting more. The production, created by Canada's only touring crip theatre company -- The Other Ordinary, is an exploration of what it means for relationships to flourish, fall apart, and survive from a disability perspective.
Warning: The show contains coarse language
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
by Joanne Bogart & Eric Rockwell
Produced by Sorry/Grateful Theatre
Apr 23rd - 26th & 30th - May 3rd, 2020
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in very distinctive styles - from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. Why be a second-rate original when you can be a first-rate imitation? Now you can see five great musicals for the price of one!
But Wait! There's More!

by Megan Zong with music from respectfulchild
Produced by Yin Yang Theatre
Feb 27th - Mar 1st & 5th - 8th 2020
"To live and be hated by the entire world, or to die and be loved by few? That was the question I pondered five years ago sitting on the hospital bed as my life as I knew it had turned into a living nightmare." - Megan Zong
Unmasked takes you on a personal journey through psychosis. Realism meets abstraction forming a world where those around us become harder to trust and the truth harder to find. With her own memories, journal entries, doctor's notes, and interviews as source material, performer Megan Zong sheds light on what it is to be human: to be fragile, resilient, and inherently worthy.
Warnings: Negative reactions to mental health, trauma, and experiences of the medical system.
