Du 21 octobre au 1er novembre 2015
By Alyson Grant
Directed by Guy Sprung
With Daniel Brochu, K.C. Coombs, Peter Farbridge, Jennifer Morehouse and Howard Rosenstein

Taking place in the historic Nurses’/Employees’ Lounge of the now-closed Royal Victoria Hospital, this unique, site-specific absurdist comedy pays tribute to the 122-year-strong legacy of this august landmark.

Set on the last functioning day of the hospital, the commemorative tale offers audiences one last chance to walk through the building’s imposing doors. Here, affection and humour emerges as the antidote to life in an absurd universe,
where progress doesn’t necessarily bring us forward. Progress! tells the story of Sarah, a middle-aged woman waking in a room at the Royal Vic after trying to end her life.

She is greeted by the room’s first ever ‘inhabitants’; a Vaudevillian duo who see themselves as caretakers of all who have died there since their own deaths in the 19th century.

Halloween Special: On Sat. Oct. 31 come dressed as your favourite soul from the
past 122 years (how long the Royal Vic was around) and pay only $20 for your ticket
Pay-What-You-Can matinees: Saturday, Oct. 24, 31 & Sunday, Oct. 25 and Nov. 1; 2pm
