“Infused with wisdom, humour . . . and heartbreaking honesty.” – NOW Magazine
In 1992, novelist Brian Francis placed a personals ad in the newspaper. In total, he received 25 responses but there were 13 letters he never responded to. Now, at a much different stage in life, Brian has written replies to those letters. Featuring a cast of 13 queer actors, Box 4901 is a hilarious, strange, sweet, and awkward look back at how gay men used to find one another.
Box 4901 made its debut as part of the 2018 Summerworks Festival’s Lab Series and played to a sold-out run. NOW magazine said it was “essential,” The Globe and Mail called it “a knock-out show” and Mooney on Theatre said it was. . .“smart, a bit poignant, a bit acerbic, and a bit funny.”
From February 27 to March 8, 2020, Box 4901 will return for a two-week run at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
