Presented by Theatre Passe Muraille
Nina is a polyamorous bisexual poet. Gabbie is a monogamous lesbian songwriter. When the two meet at an open mic night, they must reconcile their mutual attraction with their opposing perspectives on love.
Using a loop pedal and an array of instruments, Poly Queer Love Ballad is a non-traditional musical that blends slam poetry with catchy pop-folk tunes. The show challenges conceptions of queer romance and shows that intimacy isn’t confined by genre, medium, or societal obligations.
First co-produced by the Queer Arts Festival, and co-presented by The Frank Theatre and Zee Zee Theatre.
Backspace Theatre | 16 Ryerson Ave.
