Three rows of photos featuring the same three people. In the first third rows they are smiling and signing ASL against a bright yellow background. In the second row, the photo is black and white and they are posing with hands on the shoulder of the person beside them. Deafies' Unique Time appears in white outlined letters at the bottom of the photo.

Starting at 8pm, there are shows happening in both spaces at Buddies (the Cabaret and the Chamber), so when you arrive at the theatre pick the show you want to see first, and 30 minutes later when it’s done you can either stay where you are or move to the other space for your next performance. There is a different set of shows each week – so keep coming back. There are also exhibitions in the building that you can only see before the shows start, so be sure to show up early.

And remember, shows at Rhubarb are not individually ticketed. So that show you want to see at 9:30? If you just show up at 9 you will probably be out of luck and all the tickets were sold to people who came for the whole evening.

Tickets: Wednesday-Saturday – $20. Your ticket grants you access to all of the performances on a given day. Call the box office at 416-975-8555 or
