Blind Date



Starring Tess Degenstein  |  A Spontaneous Theatre Creation  | By Rebecca Northan

When Mimi’s date for the evening fails to show up, one willing audience member is invited to step into his shoes! What happens next is a thrilling, unscripted theatrical adventure offering a unique experience for the artist and audience each night — you’ll want to see it more than once! Adults only, please.

Saturday, December 9 at 8:30pm: Queer Blind Date will feature Mimi who will select a female presenting audience member.

Saturday, December 16 at 8:30pm: Queer Blind Date will feature Mathieu who will select a male presenting audience member. 

Queer Blind Date was developed with Evalyn Parry at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto, in collaboration with Julie Orton and David Tomlinson.


Approx. 90 min

Why I chose this play

“Having never had the pleasure of a real life blind date, I love the idea of being a fly-on-the-wall. This is truly theatre on a tightrope. A sexy, exciting tightrope.”

— Eric Coates, Artistic Director
