We met for supper at Tortilla Flats.
Then we saw a play called A Good Idea (In Theory) at the Theatre Passe Muraille. It's written by Emma Roberts, one of the trainers at the gym we go to.
It's the first time we'd seen a play there. It was in a cozy theatre called the Back Space.
Before the play starts, there is a singer on the stage. A CD of the singers involved is included in the cost of the play ($25).
Families can be pretty strange, but you'd have to search long and hard to find a bunch as weird as this lot. The patriarch is the inflexible Otto, who has written a once-influential political manifesto and who still rules the island commune that he set up years ago with his wife and a couple of like-minded friends. One daughter, the wispy Tricia, lives in a tree and hasn't been off the island since she was a kid. Elder sister, Juliette, is tough, works and drinks hard, and makes a habit of sleeping with supermarket security guards. Then in wanders the suicidal Blake who used to live on the island with his parents.
Yes, a strange story but it was good. Especially good were the actors playing Otto and Tricia.
