Have you found yourself with some free time and a hankering for something theatrical? If so, Infinitheatre, an Anglophone theatre based in the Mile-End, has got the solution for you.

Starting Sunday, September 11th, Infinitheatre is featuring the Unit Staged Week, an event that showcases Quebec playwrights (such as Joseph Shragg and Alison Darcy, the co-artistic directors of Montreal’s Scapegoat Carnivale Theatre and internationally showcased playwright Stephen Orlov, among other talents), as well as discussions of the pieces after the shows — a unique interactive aspect that many audience members are sure to relish.


The plays will cover a variety of topics, each with a focus on struggles that are invariably human. The first play up, called On the Line, is a story about a young 1920’s flapper who inadvertently becomes involved with some illegal-liquor peddling thugs.

Another piece fuses French, English, and Internet slang for an on-stage first when it comes to language. Some other topics covered this week deal with murder mysteries, musicals, family dramas, and even a humorous look at the pitfalls of Grad School. Additionally, several of the plays deal with ethnic and religious identities and explore the implications of belonging to a certain group.


The performances all take place at different locations that center around the Downtown-Mile End-Old Port areas, so be sure to look them up before you leave the house. And the cost? Whatever your theatre-loving heart desires. That’s right, each play is donation based, so you needn’t break the bank if that option is not in the cards.

Date: September 11 to 17, 2016
