Company
Dead Raccoon
Creator/Director
Jackson Doner
Runtime
90 minutes

Welcome to Our Lady Kensington! A failing independent, Kensington Market pub acquired by a stupid corporation.

The staff are strung out, harassing each other, flirting, breaking up, drunk on shift all the time, and generally screwed. A new, young staff member shows up and over the course of one not-so-busy Friday night this group of dusted up hooligans attempt to rekindle the importance of taking care of people, fight for our disappearing urban community spaces, and rediscover the present moment within their weird, shitty jobs.

86 ME is an immersive, hilarious, interactive tragicomedy with no scene breaks (no age requirement for admission). Starring Luke Kimball in his first production since playing the lead role of Albus Potter in Mirvish’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Jackson Doner returns to the Toronto Fringe in his second year in a row as an acclaimed writer/director in the unconventional venue category
