An Evening with Branch Out Theatre

This dramatic performance will demonstrate, through various scenarios, the role of the Member Liaison, and how they may assist members. Audience members will also have an opportunity to give feedback and suggestions towards the development of this role.

Snacks and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.

Hedwig & The Angry Inch

Thursday October 5, 8:00pm @ Hart House Theatre 


DFC has purchased a small block of tickets for the Hart House staging of the smash hit play/movie and over all cultural phenomenon Hedwig & The Angry Inch!

Winner of several awards and international acclaim, this musical transforms the theatre into a wild, sexually charged punk rock show. Hedwig, our East German, rock superstar goddess, leads the band and shares their story in a delightfully raunchy way. A victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just “an angry inch”, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is known for its titillating material that tells a tale of love and bittersweet regret.

We have ten tickets! If you would like to attend, please contact
