THEATRE › QUEER BATHROOM STORIES
Three actors play 72 characters, composites culled from hundreds of interviews of LGBTQs. Written by York U professor, author and playwright Sheila Cavanagh, QBS is based on interviews conducted for her award-winning book Queering Bathrooms: Gender, Sexuality and the Hygienic Imagination (2010). Much more than the secret sex life of the bathroom, QBS is a brutally honest display of gender politics in public washrooms. With a refined sense of toilet humour, Cavanagh asserts that while toilets are not typically considered within traditional scholarly bounds, they form a crucial part of our modern understanding of sex and gender. To June 15. Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. 12 Alexander St. buddiesinbadtimes.com.
