Event Notes


We Quit Theatre

Buddies presents a We Quit Theatre Anthology
by Dasha Plett + Gislina Patterson

i am your spaniel, or A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare / 805-4821 / Passion Play

A week of performances by We Quit Theatre and friends. Rituals for the discontented, diversions for the disenchanted, and a carnival for quitters! A conversation between trans best friends and lovers, and a sharing of the things they created, together and apart, in their basement apartments.

Last seen in a google doc performing an iteration of 805-4821 as part of Buddies’ Queer, Far, Wherever You Are series, Winnipeg-based duo We Quit Theatre takes over the Cabaret space with a collection of three works, including a trans coming out story made out of other stories; an errant lecture on Shakespearean text analysis; and a series of improvised erotic revisions of bible stories, immortalized to cassette tape live on stage. The performance of 805-4821 will be accompanied by a sharing of Sadie Berlin 's This Alien Nation , a loose political exposé and response to We Quit Theatre's piece.

Our staff have been monitoring provincial and city regulations, and have used this information to create a COVID-19 Safety Package for visitors, artists, and staff while at Buddies.
