You Should Have Stayed Home (aka#G20Romp) is a play about Tommy Taylor’s experience over 48 hours at the 2010 G20 weekend in Toronto. While trying to return home from his first ever protest as a law-abiding citizen at the “Free Speech Zone” , Taylor was swept up in a mass arrest, caged with 40 other people in a ten foot by twenty foot cage. An adaption of a viral Facebook note, this community-powered production incorporates local citizens to tell the story of the largest mass arrest in Canadian history.

Coming Soon

You know Scott Thompson from such ground-breaking television series as Larry Sanders, Hannibal and The Kids in the Hall where he created such memorable characters as businessman Danny Husk, B movie star Francesca Fiore and of course, barfly Buddy Cole. Now he has taken off the wigs, got up off the bar stool and grabbed the microphone. Yes, ladies, gentlemen and otherwise, Scott Thompson is taking on the art of stand up comedy. So if you like salacious showbiz stories, hilarious sexual adventures and boundary pushing comedy from an aging enfant terrible this is the show for you.

A showcase of the best Fringe artists Montreal has to offer. Follow the #fringebuzz leading up to the fest, and join us for a multidisciplinary Cabaret night of indie theatre, comedy, burlesque and more!
