Dufferin Grove Park ~ June 18th to June 22nd, 2008


Hello Friends,

The Cooking Fire Theatre Festival opened last night in spite of a wee bit of rain. The cooks served a fabulous supper and all our excellent performers gave excellent performances, not to mention the most excellent audience who persevered with us. We thank them. We will not be canceling our shows unless we have sustained torrential downpours, so please come out with umbrella and sweater in hand to enjoy a delightful evening in the park. If we all have umbrellas it will not rain!

Thank you all,

Kate, Sarah and Lea

We are pleased to announce The Fifth Annual Cooking Fire Theatre Festival, a week-long performance extravaganza celebrating theatre, food and public space in Toronto’s Dufferin Grove Park. From June 18-22, local, national and international theatre companies will present original work that promises to delight, entice, and inspire. Each evening, returning hosts Les Trouvères will lead the audience from site to site throughout the park to see performances ranging from a pickle-puppet show to a manual on how to deal with very large disasters, by companies from Portugal, the USA and Toronto. Delicious organic meals will be served to the audience over cooking fires and from Dufferin Grove Park’s two wood-fired outdoor community bake ovens. Building on the success of the last four years, this year’s Cooking Fire Theatre Festival will offer the experience of enchanting and challenging theatre, wonderful food and the beginning of summer.
