7:30pm | Amy Cunningham – Funbags

Amy Cunningham tells something called The Boot Story. Because The Boot Story is a crowd-pleaser — and crowds are better when they’re pleased. A show about containers. And wrappers. And skin sacs. And borders. The parts that shape and define, and constrict and separate. Like a boot stuck to a foot. Or a gender stuck to a body.

“Whip-smart,” The Torontoist.

“Deft, timely comedy that doesn’t dumb itself down” Mooney on Theatre.
