Details

Join us for the play, Never Swim Alone, which in 1998 won Daniel MacIvor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_MacIvor) the award for overall excellence at the New York International Fringe Festival. The play will be presented as part of the 2014 Toronto Fringe Festival (http://fringetoronto.com/fringe-festival/what-is-a-fringe/).

THE PLAY

Meet Frank and Bill. Frank’s taller, but Bill has the nicer suit. The two men are locked in a fierce competition to determine who is the better man. Each match is refereed by a beautiful woman who holds a dark secret from their past. As their competition becomes more desperate, the reasons for their rivalry become clear. More information.

Tickets may also be sold at the door an hour before the show. They are $10. CASH ONLY. Keep in mind that, for the popular shows (and small venues), people line up hours early and the tickets may sell out, so it's recommended you buy your ticket in advance.

Members are responsible for purchasing their own tickets directly from the festival.

SEATING ARRANGEMENTS: Seating is unreserved so members will enter the theatre together and sit together as a group.

MEETUP ARRANGEMENTS

Meet Amy at 6:45 p.m. in the lineup to enter the seating area at the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace. If you're late, look for Amy inside the seating area. Amy is short and will be wearing a red Beijing 2008 Olympics cap.

AFTER-SHOW MEETUP SPOT: Meet Amy outside the Theatre Passe Muraille's front doors. She'll be wearing her red baseball cap. If members are interested, we'll go for refreshment.

PLEASE NOTE: Fringe shows begin exactly on time. Ticket holders who arrive late are not admitted.
