Here’s a trio of the hottest things you can do on the second Hump Day in March.*
New Ideas Festival
Where: Alumnae Theatre Company, 70 Berkeley Street
Let’s face it, new ideas never get old. Now in it’s 26th year, this annual three-week, juried festival of new writing, works-in-progress, and experimental theatre offers a different program of plays each week as well as staged readings on Saturdays at noon. This year’s festival features 15 new works, ranging in length from 10 to 60 minutes. Tonight, the festival kicks off with Be Careful, There’s A Baby In The House by Nicholas Sgouros. Shhhhhhh.
Food on Film
Where: Bell Lightbox Theatre
Momofuku Toronto has partnered with TIFF for the 2014 Food on Film series – an event that brings together chefs, food experts, and film lovers to enjoy culinary cinema and conversation. Every month, host Matt Galloway of CBC’s Metro Morning welcomes guests to discuss the intersections of cinema, culture, and gastronomy. Tonight, Lucky Peach’s Peter Meehan presents Wong Kar-Wai’s Chungking Express. Rush tickets available – just don’t skip dinner to get there or this could be torture.
Where: The Press Club
Four authors will take the stage tonight at The Press Club to deliver a concert of words; Kathryn Kuitenbrower, Robert Priest, Evan Munday, and Robyn Doolittle, “exposer of the soulsucking hellscape that is our civic life.” So yeah, it’s going to be fun. What better way to spend your Hump Day than listening to poetry and stories about crack…
*Of course, no one would blame you for staying in to watch this and just smile, smile, smile.
