SummerWorks ticket giveaway: Holy Mothers (Die Präsidentinnen) on Friday, August 9th at 12:30pm


As the 2013 SummerWorks Festival opens on Thursday there’s no better way to kick off the festival than to take a friend to see a show for free!

Mooney on Theatre is giving away tickets to the Friday, August 9th, 12:30pm performance of Holy Mothers (Die Präsidentinnen) at Factory Theatre Mainspace (125 Bathurt St., Toronto).

To be entered into the draw for a pair of tickets for the Friday, August 9th at 12:30pm performance just send an email to with the subject line “Holy Mothers contest” by 3:00PM on Thursday, August 8, 2013.

See below for details about the show and contest rules:

From press release: Meet the Holy Mothers: prudish penny-pinching Erna, man hungry Grete and sublime bare-handed rescuer of clogged toilets Mariedl. Three aging cleaning ladies attempt to release themselves from their banal existence: conjuring up fantasies of “Polish liver sausage Bishops,” Aryan tuba-playing lotharios, and divinely-clogged toilets… but to what end? Warning: Mature Language.
Contest Rules:
  • The only acceptable form of entry for the contest is by email, sent to (Mooney on Theatre will never use your email address for anything other than to reply to the specific contest you entered, and we certainly would never sell it or anything like that)
  • Entrants must be available on the day and time listed in the contest. The tickets are available for that showing only, and cannot be transferred to another date.
  • The winning entrants will be chosen by a random drawing.
  • Winners will be notified by email by 9pm on the day of contest closing and need to confirm their attendance 10am AT THE LATEST the following morning so that their names can be given to the theatre company for tickets to be set aside.
  • Photo I.D. may be required to claim the winning tickets.
  • Tickets must be picked up 60 to 30 minutes before show time at the venue box office. The box office reserves the right to release any tickets not picked up 15 minutes before show time.
  • We ask that all winners provide us with a quick blurb on what they thought of the show in the comments section of the Mooney on Theatre review.
