Special Performance of "The Middle Place" to beneft Youth Shelter, Oct 27

Help Fill The House for Youth Without Shelter!
This coming Wednesday, October 27, a special benefit performance of The Middle Place is taking place at Theatre Passe Muraille. All proceeds are going to YWS Shelter in Rexdale - the shelter where Andrew conducted all the original interviews.
The Middle Place began in 2007 when a young, idealistic playwright accompanied Project: Humanity into the shelter system to do on-camera interviews with the residents of a Rexdale youth shelter. That playwright Andrew Kushnir,  conducted a series of on-camera interviews with the shelter’s residents and workers; these transcribed interviews became the script for The Middle Place, which is currently showing at Theatre Passe Muraille.  With four actors creating sixteen residents and three workers, along with a fifth actor playing Kushnir himself, The Middle Place is a compelling, relevant piece of Canadian theatre that exposes an often forgotten faction of Toronto’s residents.The Middle Place is verbatim theatre at its best.

This is a performance we really want to sell out. If you're planning to catch the piece this Fall, this is the perfect opportunity to do so - by simply buying a ticket, you'll be assisting the at-risk youth who made this play possible. Tickets are only $30 and your dollars are going to an extraordinary organization. For tickets visit call Arts Box Office at (416)504-7529 or purchase online
