Toronto Adventures
by Lindsay Kyte

Lindsay KyteThe comedy Toronto Adventures makes its PEI premiere at the Victoria Playhouse July 18 to August 3. Toronto Adventures is written by Lindsay Kyte, based on her real life adventures as a Maritime actress battling the smog and subways of the Big Smoke.

What if you moved to a place where you no longer spoke the language, knew how to walk and couldn’t even order a coffee? What if suddenly pizza was complicated, smiling at others caused confusion and your next-door neighbours didn’t recognize you? What if all of a sudden, spending a Friday night with your grandmother, who once outdrank an entire soccer team, seemed like a really fond memory?

Toronto Adventures emerged from a series of weekly emails Kyte was writing back home detailing the culture shock she was experiencing in Toronto. Much to her surprise and delight, people, entertained by her saga, began to forward these emails on to others. They have now appeared in various publications including The Toronto Star, have been a topic on CBC radio, are now a weekly blog in The Cape Breton Post and have been turned into a five-minute comedic series on Canada’s first Internet channel ( Toronto Adventures’ stage premieres last summer at Festival Antigonish, the Membertou Trade & Convention Centre and the Atlantic Fringe Festival received wide press and great reviews.

Toronto Adventures is directed by artistic director Erskine Smith with scenic design by Scott MacConnell. Appearing in the production with Kyte is Sherilyn Brady, Stephen MacDougall and Josh Weale. Lighting is by David Nicholson.
