Brain Storm

7:00 PM on July 5th / at the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace. (16 Ryerson Ave.)

Kate has suffered a brain injury, completely upending her sensory perception and relationship to the world. As she struggles to navigate her new life, she looks to her deceased grandmother, a medium who communicated with the spirit of famous neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield, channeling his message of hope for a conscious mind that survives the physical brain. Told in a physical and poetic style, BRAIN STORM is a visually arresting journey which asks the question; are our brains magic, machines – or both? #brainstormplay #areyouaware

LUCID LUDIC is partnering with BIST (Brain Injury Society of Toronto) on this event.

For the Love of Pie

10:00 PM on July 5th at the Tarragon Solo Room. (30 Bridgman Ave.)

Julia Child meets Roxie Hart in this zany solo show about a career-obsessed cooking show host. It’s 1983, and fading star chef Georgia Peach needs to dazzle her new producers. Nothing will stop her comeback – except, perhaps, for the budding young talent living under her roof. Described by Montreal’s Bloody Underrated as “a diamond in the rough,” For the Love of Pie is a dark and funny story that follows an unconventional family in their quest for fame, love, and the perfect recipe.
