Love is a battlefield

Note: all events at Buddies have been suspended until May 1, 2020 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. You can read the full announcement here.

When the life they built together starts to collapse, two women plunge into a fantastical and tumultuous journey into their shared past attempting to recapture the magic in their relationship. Set on an imaginative stage design of memories come to life, Mine is a poetic contemplation of what happens to queer love when the lovers grow apart.

Mine was commissioned and developed through the Buddies Residency Program. Additional development support from the Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council.

For selected performances, a block of Pay-What-You-Can rush tickets will go on sale at noon for that day’s performance, and you pick the price. If cost is a barrier, this is your chance to get an affordable ticket. If you are able to pay more, this is your chance to increase your support for the work on stage and ensure it stays affordable for those who need it. Pay What You Can tickets are available until 7:00pm on weekdays and 2:30pm on Sundays, or until they sell out – whichever comes first.

Rush Tickets are generally only available in-person at our box office, and we recommend getting here early for more popular shows as these tickets can sell fast. However, if getting down here in the middle of the day presents a barrier – accessible transportation, childcare, etc – simply call the box office at 416-975-8555 and we’ll hold up to two Rush Tickets for you that you can purchase when you arrive to see the show.

Relaxed performance
The performance of Mine on Sunday, March 29 (2:30PM) will be a relaxed performance. Patrons who would benefit from a relaxed performance can access $10 tickets in advance using the code “RP10” at checkout – there will also be a number of pay-what-you-can tickets available at the door.

Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment.

This performance model is specifically designed for folks on the Autism Spectrum or people who live with Tourettes, delayed learning, or cognitive disabilities. However, Relaxed Performances also provide an alternative option for people living specific traumas, people whose bodies can’t stay still for long periods of time, young children, and other folks who would enjoy a more relaxed theatre-going experience.

A Relaxed Performance removes common triggers such as strobe lights and startling stage effects and has a relaxed attitude towards audience members making sounds during the performance or exiting/re-entering the theatre, and introduces audience members to the show with a more comprehensive pre-show introduction to characters, story, and content.
