We’ll share a selection of short audio plays from Toronto’s Factory Theatre new series of audio theatrical works. You Can’t Get There From Here offers listeners fresh perspectives on familiar Toronto landmarks and neighbourhoods and glimpses into the micro-dramas occurring each day around us, hidden in plain sight.
Each episode offers a new, self-contained story and a vivid audio experience from each of our five playwrights and the series features the vocal talents of over 20 artists and the writing talents of some of Canada’s most creative minds: Anusree Roy, Matthew MacKenzie, Yvette Nolan, Keith Barker, and Luke Reece.
Helping us navigate the Toronto scene are special guests and Torontonians Christine Malec and JJ Hunt. Christine and JJ currently host the popular Talk Description To Me podcast series and have ventured on many described walks of the city together.
The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea. The pre-show introduction will begin at 6:45 pm with Amy and special guests Christine and JJ. The show begins at 7 pm with a running time of approximately 75 minutes, followed by conversation, Q and A and a prize draw.
