Poly Queer Love Ballad
November 25th - December 1st, 2019
After a sold out run with the Queer Arts Festival, co-presented by Zee Zee Theatre and the Frank Theatre, Poly Queer Love Ballad tours to Toronto!
Poly Queer Love Ballad is an intimate, edgy new musical, merging slam poetry with catchy pop-folk tunes. Nina, a polyamorous bisexual poet, meets Gabbie, a monogamous lesbian songwriter, at Cafe Deux Soleil. With two microphones, a loop pedal, and array of instruments, they struggle to reconcile their fierce mutual attraction with their opposing perspectives on love.

“...the tenderness and rapture of this story made me weep big, nostalgic tears." —Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca
