Fillet of Solo Festival
The twenty-fourth-annual storytelling festival presents fifteen storytelling collectives and sixteen solo performers together, and includes immigration stories curated by Moth Slam winner Nestor Gomez, LGBTQ stories from OUTspoken!, and local live lit favorites.
Here Lies Henry
(Interrobang Theatre Project)
Daniel McIvor’s Jeff-nominated one-man play about the big questions—life, death, beauty, truth and lies—streams through the month of February.
Bechdel Fest 8: Realign
(Broken Nose Theatre)
Named after the famous Bechdel-Wallace Test, the annual festival gathers femme, female, trans and queer writers and actors in short plays about topics other than men. Which turns out to be quite a lot of things.
January 29-March 26
Festival on the Square

The three-day benefit festival features collections of ten-minute plays by Black playwrights, conversations with artists and a performance by Red Clay Dance Company.
New choreography by company member Yoshihisa Arai to Ravel’s iconic score will livestream from the Black Box Theatre in Joffrey Tower, along with a new short work by rehearsal director Nicholas Blanc.
