April 23rd Line-Up

We’re Back!

Movie cover of We're Back--3 dinosaurs walking in a parade down New York City street

Scripts by the following playwrights and/or screenwriters will be featured at this Sunday’s Cold Reads:

  • The Birds Aflutter by Oliver Georgiou
  • Bloody Sunrise by Joanne Latimer
  • Immigrant Story by Jarrett Rusnak
  • Writer’s Challenge by Ron Fromstein

And this week’s musical guest: Jordan Paul

Young man with long hair on boardwalk in front of lake

Jordan Paul is an unstoppable force of fluid emotion. Equipped with a voice that leaves audiences breathless, his live show is a must-see. A clever songwriter and multi-instrumentalist at only 24, Paul has a ghostly style all his own. Citing Nina Simone, Dylan Thomas, Greek Mythology, and Indian Raga among his creative influences–his music is as eclectic as it is spiritually intelligent. Born in Kingston, Ontario, Paul now lives in Toronto–where he is recording his debut studio release—out on Leesta Vall Records (Brooklyn, NY) this fall. ‘Rain’ features Andrew Scott of Sloan on drums–and will be available on a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl; hand-pressed on a Sun Records era lathe.

What? When? Where? and How?

Actors should arrive to sign up at 7:00 pm with the show to start at 8:00 pm. Our home is The Social Capital, located at 154 Danforth Avenue. It’s above the Black Swan Tavern just east of Broadview station on the Danforth.

Threefest! March 19th Line-Up

It always happens in three’s… For the third Sunday of the month the Toronto Cold Reads presents

THR33Fest

The number 3

Here’s how it works:
Each of these three writers started a script, then handed it off. The next person wrote a few more pages. Then handed it off. By the end, they had created three complete short scripts written in part by three different human beings!

This month’s three fest scripts are: Bowlodrome, Come Out and Say It, and Liquor Strike

Written by: Jarrett Rusnak, Tim Cadeny, and Adam Tomlinson

Plus this week’s writer’s challenge by Joanne Latimer.

Come cheer on these 3 writers on this and the other THIRD Sundays of each month.

What? When? Where? and How?

Actors should arrive to sign up at 7:00 pm with the show to start at 8:00 pm. Our home is The Social Capital, located at 154 Danforth Avenue. It’s above the Black Swan Tavern just east of Broadview station on the Danforth.
