There is much happening in the world right now. But if you happen to be out and wondering about the city, drop by 401 Richmond, to Gallery YYZ for Libby Hague's splendid sculpture exhibit. I'll be performing a love letter to a lost little one at about 1ish, 1:40ish and 2:20ish. Drop in for a bit of art and stimulation!!

Thanks to Alison Broverman and The Toronto Star for this fabulous preview article about The Edward Bond Festival, which started today! 

 Maev Beaty and Alan Dilworth organize Edward Bond Festival

We're thrilled by the response from the community. Today's Ian Watson workshop has been going wonderfully and tonight is the first performance of The Bundle at Ryerson University. 
We've reached our 'hard cost' fundraising goal. Every dollar raised from now on goes directly to the over 60 theatre artists who've donated their time to the festival!
 Donate here to help us thank them for their work!
