A Man Walks into a Bar

A new play by Rachel Blair
Directed by David Matheson

A woman, with the help of a man, tells a joke: A man walks into a bar and meets a waitress. As lines between the performers and the characters blur, a tense and funny standoff about gender, power, and selling sex emerges.

Director David Matheson is Professor of Acting at Sheridan/UTM and Artistic Director of Dora-nominated Wordsmyth Theatre.


Performer and playwright Rachel Blair won the Fringe New Play Contest in 2008 with her debut play Wake, which earned Patron’s Pick and Best of Fringe.


Performer Blue Bigwood-Mallin is a Toronto-based actor and director, as well as, a founding member of Coyote Collective.
