You Should Have Stayed HomeYou Should Have Stayed Home – A G20 Romp” the one-man play written and performed by Toronto G20 detainee Tommy Taylor is our event of the weekend.

An important yet entertaining production that invites Ottawa to volunteer for a 10min scene and attend for free. A globally relevant play it covers the 48-hours in Toronto when bystanders, tourists, peaceful protestors, kids as young as 16 and even a uniformed TTC driver were swept up by police and detained in appalling conditions without access to water, food, phones or legal aid. For anyone interested in important news stories, Canadian events or Civil Rights this is a must-see production.  Friday & Saturday 8pm (7pm for volunteers) @ ArtsCourt, 2 Daly Ave.
