Dead Cat Bounce (Watercourse Theatre) 2010 Toronto Fringe Rieview

By Sam Mooney

dead cat bounce Dead Cat Bounce is a love story – boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. And does it with the help of ‘The Mayor’ the homeless man who owns the corner. Boy is a stock trader and girl is a blues singer.

The corner in question is Bellevue and Nassau in Kensington Market.  Outside Kos Restaurant – which is the venue. The audience sits on the patio at Kos and eats and drinks while the play takes place on the patio and on the sidewalk.

It’s a great venue.  Life goes on and people do their thing Nassau.  There was a vigorous frisbee game going on for most of the show and a few times one of the players came to the rail to add his two cents to the action.

It was just like sitting on a patio having a drink and something to eat and people watching.  Eavesdropping a bit.  Something we all love to do whether or not we admit it. A lot of fun.

See a show and have a meal, go to Dead Cat Bounce.
