Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival presented in partnership with MainLine Theatre is a 4-day event that aims to present new feminist works. With these works, we create an artistic space that is primed to educate, provoke and inspire change both on the stage and in our daily lives.

On March 23, The festival will launch with a vernissage of selected artworks from visual artists from the city, from 5-7PM at the MainLine Gallery.

With a performance from Jacqueline Van de Geer's with a performance of her piece Magnify at 6:30PM.
In Magnify! Jacqueline van de Geer explores the process of aging through spoken word and movement. Our body is our home, a home that one day we have to leave, a home that one day will leave us. Magnify! honours our body, our bones, our skin and our heartbeats.

The event is FREE

Everybody wants to have an easy breezy sexy cool summer! Thankfully MTL's most delightful sketch troupes are bringing their A-game to OFF-JFL! Joined by award winning troupe from Toronto, Tallboyz II Men, this sketch comedy show is sure to be a sunset ocean cruise of laughs. Grab your linen suite and flowy mumus and join us for some sweaty chuckles!

The comedy you need when the world is a joke. Its hard to stay positive in a world filled with misogyny, racism, and rising nationalism but gosh darn it if we ain't gonna try! Melbourne's The Music calls Post Joke Era, "a virtuoso display of smart, slick, silly brilliance - a metaphorical (and literal) mic-drop of a show," giving it five stars, while UK's Chortle calls Smith, "always relevant, but never reverent." This Canadian/American gentleman elf isn't fucking around. You should see this.

Ari Shaffir is a Just for Laughs Festival favourite, with regular appearances on The Nasty Show, live recordings of his comedy podcast The Skeptic Tank, as well as past hosting duties for his long-form storytelling show This is Not Happening on Comedy Central. Now he is bringing you even more raucous laughs with another year of his storyteller series, renamed and reclaimed! Ari selflessly shares what can only be his embarrassingly true real life tales.
