The Toronto Fringe Festival is coming: June 30 – July 11. And with it, the tradition of shameless (self-) promotion.
Here’s a bunch of plays – in alphabetical order – featuring Alumnae and Alumnae-related playwrights, directors, actors and designers. Yeah, so some of these folks are not members (the guys), but have worked with us a fair bit.
For full play and creative team listings, show times and venues, please visit the Toronto Fringe website: www.fringetoronto.com
