Your production: Welcome to the Bunker!

Your role: Writer/Actor/Producer

Tell me about your show.

Welcome to the Bunker! is an immersive zombie apocalypse comedy set in a bunker deep below Toronto’s Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace. Katie, a young zombie rights activist, and Todd, an antisocial doomsday prepper, will give you and your fellow survivors an orientation into bunker living that could just save your lives- if everything goes according to their half-assed, yet optimistic, plan. Feelings Circles! Obsessive rationing! Nearly fully figured out chemical toilets! Just ignore that scratching coming from the walls, won’t you?

Now again in the style of a tweet by Donald Trump.

Canadians hiding from zombies in bunkers? Not surprised! Isn’t pot legal up there? Sad! #brainless

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

Definitely Sex T-Rex’s Bendy Sign Tavern at the Paddock Tavern; Peter N’ Chris’s Chris’tmas Carol; Dear Uncle Wish by Theatre Enthused; The Coincidence Men Presents Shakespeare’s Ghostbusters; and Everything There is to Know by Musicals Canada.


The world is becoming an increasingly crazy and volatile place. If you could air-drop an elite squad of theatre artists any place in the world, where would you drop them and what would their mission be?

How did you find out about the Initiative?! I have to go make some untraceable calls now….
