Beyond Boundaries presents…

Two Kittens & A Kid (A Gay Man Raising His Inner Diva)


Following a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, sold out shows at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, the Toronto Centre for the Arts Studio Theatre, and Don’t Tell Mama in NYC, Christopher Wilson’s new one-man musical cabaret about becoming a gay foster father to an adolescent black girl plays The Registry Theatre for one night only!

 

In this deeply personal and autobiographical story, a gay, white, suburban man suddenly becomes ‘Mr Mom’ to an adolescent, black, urban girl. White-knuckled on a roller coaster of teenage angst, this new parent falls off the precipice into the mystery of black hair, menstruation, boyz, and ultimately mental health and addiction. Often comedic but always honest, this one-man musical cabaret is a poignant and sometimes heartbreaking story of love, cultural understanding, and desperately trying to find your way!

VOC Plays the Movies: The Phantom Carriage

This seminal 1921 Swedish horror film was directed by and starred Victor Sjöström, who also wrote the screenplay. One of the leading filmmakers of the silent era in Europe, he returned to acting upon the advent of talkies. This film was a major influence on Ingmar Bergman, who cast Sjöström in his own 1957 classic Wild Strawberries. The figure of death who collects the deceased in his carriage would re-appear in Bergman’s landmark film The Seventh Seal.

 

The VOC Silent Film Harmonic are a group of accomplished musicians whose approach to playing to silent movies is explained by bassist and group leader Ted Harms: “The blockbuster movies of the 1920’s came with symphonic scores, and big-city theatres had their own orchestras. However, most film music was supplied by pianists or small ensembles that worked from classical themes or cue sheets of generic-themed music serving as the basis for improvisations. This is the tradition that the VOC pursues”.

VOC Plays The Movies is introduced by Andrew Hunt, Associate Professor of History at the University of Waterloo. Specializing in United States history, the Civil Rights Movement, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Conspiracy Theories in American History, and the History of the American West, his new course is titled “Rock ‘n’ Roll & United States History.”
