Additional Advisories

PTE is proud to be a theatre that hosts new stories and new voices, and we hope everyone has a positive experience on their journey with our productions.

We want to acknowledge that, regardless of whether the performance is light-hearted or serious, there can be themes, images or language that may affect people negatively.  As a theatre, we provide audience advisories and content warnings to prepare and care for our audience. 

In many cases, a general warning of content is given to prepare audiences. However, general warning of themes may not be enough in every case. PTE honours the integrity of the playwrights and does not censor their choices, but in cases where we can anticipate some patrons may have more specific concerns, we developed additional advisories specific to the play.

You will find the specific advisories for The Wedding Party below.

For some, the described content may have no effect, but for others these advisories are an essential part of keeping their reception of the play a safe experience. We recognize that we will never be able to fully anticipate what might be challenging material for every individual, but our team here at the theatre is working with a consultant to generate these advisories to the best of our abilities.

Advisories for The Wedding Party:

1. The end of the first act includes a recovering alcoholic taking a drink as a response to stress and becoming intoxicated in the second act.

2. In the second act, a character uses physical gestures of self-harm in a joking manner, while another character jokingly encourages the self-harm.

The Wedding Party

by Kristen Thomson
November 20 - December 8, 2019
Based on characters created with Trish Lindstrom, Tony Nappo, Moya O'Connell, Tom Rooney and Bahia Watson

A wild romp through the worst reception ever!

What do estranged twins, Moldovan circus performers, a Bernese mountain dog and several bottles of expensive champagne have in common? In The Wedding Party, the answer is nothing . . . and everything! There’s nothing like a wedding reception for the potential of chaos, especially when the families are mingling across the divide of social status. Between family feuds, mistaken identities, an $8,000 bottle of champagne and a mind-blowing, character-swapping cast playing dozens of roles, The Wedding Party will have you both cringing in recognition and laughing in delight.

In partnership with the Arts Club Theatre Company

“What brings many pleasures and belly laughs is the convention of performers character-swapping at a dizzying rate, ranging across genders, nationalities and ages.” – Toronto Star
