UPDATE: With Montreal now classified as a Red Zone, and live theatre being prohibited by health and safety regulations, some performances of Infinithéâtre's upcoming production of "King of Canada" have been postponed. And the good news? Infinithéâtre will be amongst the first to welcome you home to live theatre, with performances of "King of Canada" now being scheduled to run from October 29th - November 8th!
Recently included as part of our Infinite Playwrights' Chat Room series, King of Canada is a meta-theatrical political comedy with two actors: a woman and a man. The man plays Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, and the woman plays everybody else; close to forty other characters including King’s mother, FDR, Churchill, Hitler, and three Irish terriers named Pat. King of Canada, directed by Zach Fraser, will run from October 29 to November 8 at KIN Gallery. Tickets will be extremely limited in order to comply with social distancing protocols.
All tickets purchased for our October 29 - November 1st performances will be honoured. Ticket-holders for our postponed dates (October 20 - October 28th) will be personally contacted for the opportunity to reschedule or request a refund.
Want to be the first to know when tickets are back on sale? Join our "King of Canada" waiting list.

Infinithéâtre is inviting members of the public across Canada to participate in the development of a series of exciting new plays. Once a week, a work-in-progress will be released online in read-only digital format. Our playwrights are looking for your help to write the next draft of their play. You’ll have ten days to read, prepare comments, questions, suggestions and e-mail them back to Infinithéâtre.This is a genuine dramaturgical process. A live Zoom on-line chat session with the playwright and moderator will take up your suggestions, address questions and hopefully provide the writer with fresh inspiration for the new draft.
All interested members of the public are welcome to audit the event live. If you would like to participate in the live discussion with the playwright, just let us know when you send in your comments. You could be invited as a guest into the Zoom online Chat Room.The Infinite Playwrights’ Chat Room happens Thursdays at 5PM.

Red Peter turned the stage into a veritable annual report of the company. His speech, his accusation and his actions completely blurred the biological boundary between man and ape ... civilization and barbarism, freedom and slavery, hypocrisy and nature ... Hold on tight!
