Almost Live: You Can’t Get There from Here, Volume 2

Hosted by VocalEye

Following their highly acclaimed first season, Factory Theatre is proud to be returning to headphones across the globe with You Can’t Get There From Here Vol. 2. This limited series features a brand new set of five commissioned audio dramas from more of our country’s most creative playwrights. You Can’t Get There From Here offers listeners fresh perspectives on familiar Toronto landmarks and neighbourhoods and glimpses into the micro-dramas occurring each day around us, hidden in plain sight.

Each episode offers a new, self-contained story and a vivid audio experience from each playwright.

We’ll present the first 3 episodes in the series (the final 2 will be presented on July 6):

Episode 1: Casting by Ins Choi Episode 2: The Standard Sing by Marjorie Chan Episode 3: A Good Place by Guillermo Verdecchia

Helping Amy navigate the Toronto scene are returning guests and favourite Torontonians, Christine Malec and JJ Hunt. Christine and JJ currently host the popular Talk Description To Me podcast series and have ventured on many described walks of the city together.

The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea. The pre-show introduction will begin at 6:45 pm with Amy and guests. The featured show begins at 7 pm followed by conversation, Q and A and a prize draw. 

If you’ve never attended a VocalEye Almost Live Zoom event before, you can register for just one event or sign up for the full season. A Zoom link and reminder will be sent to you on the day of the event.
