It's not much, but it's home. That's what the six long-term residents of a run-down rooming house believe about where they live. But that all blows up when the house's owner hands out eviction notices, leaving them with little choice but to fight. The law's against them, but the roomers are desperate to keep that leaky roof over their heads.

Land acknowledgement

Govern Yourself Accordingly Productions acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis peoples. We acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands. We respect and are grateful for the opportunity to perform this story on these lands.


Content advice

Not recommended for persons under 14 years of ageMature language

Contains occasional hostile/triggering language spoken by characters, targeting the disabled, those dealing with addiction, sex trade workers, the underhoused, immigrants, inter alia. Those facing/living with underhousing may find the subject matter disturbing.

Sensory description

Straightforward production involving players moving about a living room; no special lighting or sound effects. There is no extraordinary movement beyond one brief physical struggle amongst three characters. The play features more dialogue than movement. Those who are blind/vision impaired would likely be able to enjoy the play.
