Following a wildly successful run at the renowned La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club in New York City in February, Drink With Death is given a complete Toronto overhall with the best and brightest of the city’s vibrant indie folk scene in this morbid theatrical cabaret where the dead rise again to tell the stories of their untimely ends through song.

The Cameron House will become a portal into the afterlife, a speakeasy in purgatory with countless unexpected twists and turns for an hilarious and unexpectedly beautiful show.

There will be no boundary between performers and patrons as the cast recount their tragic tales amidst the audience. Who knows who might be sitting beside you?

Seize the opportunity to share a drink with the dearly departed and experience the humour, tragedy, pain and splendour behind humanity’s greatest fear.

The cast is filled with luminaries of Toronto’s vibrant indie urban folk scene, who have all written the music themselves; including three members of the explosive Lemon Bucket Orkestra; a former mortician turned musician / front person of Ada Dahli & The Pallbearers), NOW’s best songwriter of 2010 and 2012 nominee and a banjo/guitar picker who has opened for comedian Louis CK.

Romana Soutus is a New York based actress, director and producer whose work has been produced at the experimental theatre institution La MaMa ETC in New York City. Christopher Weatherstone is one of Toronto’s hottest up-and-coming musicians and has been nominated for a Juno award, four Canadian Folk Music awards and a SiriusXM Indie award.

Starring Ada Dahli, Freeman Dre, Darren Eedens, Michael Louis Johnson, Jaash Singh, Christopher Weatherstone.
