SEason information 2018/19


These are the shows to know this year, included in the 104 Canadian plays Touchstone Theatre has presented since being founded in 1975.

We open our 2018-19 season with Kill Me Now a play equally harrowing andexhilarating and one I've wanted to direct for a long time. It is an intimate yet epic look at a unique family, dragging and kicking their way through enormous challenges. With humour and heartbreaking honesty they discover their courage and their community.

Our collaboration with Studio 58, Mortified premieres a bold and darkly funny new work by a thrilling new voice, Amy Rutherford, and combines a team of exceptional professional theatre artists working with the vibrant and talented students.

Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools, our PuSh co-presentation is a sensual, powerful and highly theatrical cross-cultural collaboration, created by extraordinary female artists. We're delighted to be a part of this national tour which also won Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Sound Design/Composition at Toronto's Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

There's nothing more collaborative than musical theatre and In Tune will feature open house style events and workshop presentations of several new works including Sally Stubbs and Britt MacLeod's sizzling musical and historical fiction, Polly and the Penthouse

Whether you're a first-time theatre-goer or a longstanding patron, the best way to see all three shows is with a VIP Pass. It gives you the best deal on tickets and guaranteed seats at the shows. We only have 100 VIP Passes available though, so book now before they're all sold out!

Hope to see you at the theatre.
