Live Theatre Returns with King of Canada!

UPDATE 10/27/2020: In light of the government of Québec's decision to extend the current Red Zone restrictions in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Québec, our live in-person performances of King of Canada have been postponed until further notice. All ticket holders will be contacted directly and offered the option to hold onto their tickets until we are permitted to open, or request a refund.

Infinithéâtre remains committed to presenting King of Canada to a live audience in the future, and we look forward to welcoming you back to live theatre as soon as we are able.

While we can't welcome you back to live theatre just yet, the show must go on! Infinithéâtre is thrilled to announce that we will be offering two live streamed performances of King of Canada, absolutely free! Join us Friday November 6th @ 7:30PM and Sunday November 8th @ 2:00PM for an exclusive live stream of King of Canada, with full costumes, sets, and props! CLICK HERE TO RSVP!

Recently included as part of our Infinite Playwrights' Chat Room series, King of Canada is a meta-theatrical political comedy with two actors: a woman and a man. The man plays Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, and the woman plays everybody else; close to forty other characters including King’s mother, FDR, Churchill, Hitler, and three Irish terriers named Pat. King of Canada, directed by Zach Fraser, will be streamed live online November 6th @ 7:30PM and November 8th @ 2PM

Infinithéâtre is inviting members of the public across Canada to participate in the development of a series of exciting new plays. Once a week, a work-in-progress will be released online in read-only digital format. Our playwrights are looking for your help to write the next draft of their play. You’ll have ten days to read, prepare comments, questions, suggestions and e-mail them back to Infinithéâtre.This is a genuine dramaturgical process. A live Zoom on-line chat session with the playwright and moderator will take up your suggestions, address questions and hopefully provide the writer with fresh inspiration for the new draft.

All interested members of the public are welcome to audit the event live. If you would like to participate in the live discussion with the playwright, just let us know when you send in your comments. You could be invited as a guest into the Zoom online Chat Room.The Infinite Playwrights’ Chat Room happens Thursdays at 5PM.

Red Peter turned the stage into a veritable annual report of the company. His speech, his accusation and his actions completely blurred the biological boundary between man and ape ... civilization and barbarism, freedom and slavery, hypocrisy and nature ... Hold on tight!
