What To Watch July 7th To Take Away The Blues

Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see Shakespeare’s King John, in this magnificent, “deliciously contemporary” production.Tom McCamus plays the title role; Graham Abbey, Seana McKenna and Patricia Collins lead the supporting cast.

Who’s Your Baghdaddy,  or How I Started The Iraq War Performed and streamed live every night from a house in Sydney, Australia.

Presented as a support group for people who started the Iraq War this dark, boisterous and irreverent story follows a handful of mid-level spies whose vanity and office politics contributed to the worst intelligence blunder in modern history.
