Speak Truth of the Dead

Supper's Ready

In Speak the Truth of the Dead, storyteller Jennifer Ansell-Clark tells the tales of a few friends, enemies, family members and possible saints, as she remembers them; for both their faults and their triumphs. We all wonder about our own mortality and how the passing of those we love (or detest) will affect us. Through the stories of the departed, Jennifer faces the questions that affect us all: When we die, what will become of us, and what will be left behind?

Performances on April 11th & 12th at 8PM.

This performance is also a fundraiser and half the proceeds will be given to the Oncology Pivot Nurses Fund of the Jewish General Hospital. These wonderful nurses have been the rocks anchoring many a person's journey through battling cancer and they more than deserve our love and support.

What you need to know: You might know Arj Barker as "Dave" from HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, or as the co-creator of the off-Broadway hit The Marijuana-logues. Come see his new show Get In My Head and you’ll know a lot more about him. Maybe too much.

A roast-battle-style compliment contest where comedians compete to see who can compliment one another in this showdown of sweetness, this clash of consideration, this barrage of benevolence. Playing off of the idea of roasts, Boast Rattle has two comedians go head-to-head, delivering alternating blows of the nicest order. One lucky crowd member who gets some on-the-spot boasting. One Champion of Charity, Master of Magnanimity.

Precinct is 45 minute improvised narrative. This means the performers know who their characters are but no idea where the story will end up (spoiler: it's always hilarious). Andy Assaf, Dimitri Kyres, and Jason Grimmer play the three main cops: soft-hearted Carl "Carly" Boucher, short-fused John Calgary, and gruff step-father of five Captain Bill Garber. Other guests will be announced soon! Together these tough cops are cleaning up the mean streets of Montreal's Plateau one perp at a time!
