I Heart Boomer:
It all starts with a letter. A letter, a bare stage, and one really giddy, really indecisive, and really emotional clown. The journey from the arrival of the letter to the opening of it is a roller coaster ride. Because, after all, this may very well be the most important letter anyone has ever received.

"I Heart Boomer" by Rebecca Bauer

Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.

Tickets can be purchase online or by telephone Tuesday through Saturday from 2pm-6pm.

MainLine Theatre presents
CAPTAIN AURORA: IN CONCERT
Created by Trevor Barrette

Following sold-out performances at the 2015 and 2016 Festival St-Ambroise Fringe de Montréal and the 2016 Wildside Theatre Festival, Captain Aurora is back in a special one-night-only event!

See the sensational play that sparked an international phenomenon. Worlds collide in Richard O'Brien's musical-theatre masterpiece as camp sci-fi meets sexual exploration, glam-rock, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever.

Sexuality is always wrapped up in structures and systems of power. This new verbatim theatre play by Dane Stewart offers an intimate and radically honest examination of sex and power from a queer perspective. Five students take a graduate seminar studying the work of revolutionary philosopher Michel Foucault. As they argue over issues of sexuality, gender, oppression and free will, these theories begin to rupture and spill out into their own lives. The characters expose the complexities of sexuality as it collides with BDSM, pup play, disability, gender, race, and sex work.
