A young queer kid enters Zigs, Sudbury’s gay bar, for the very first—and possibly final—time. Disillusioned with life in the crater, he dreams of taking off for greener and gayer pastures. Under the auspices of Sudbury’s divine protector, Sainte Poésie, a trio of the bar’s colourful fauna take him under their wings and invite him into their magical, eclectic, and absurd world. Will they be able to convince him to stay or will they lose him to the siren song of the big city?
Translated over the course of Pat the Dog’s inaugural Northerners’ Creation Unit, Sudbury Saturgay Night is an adaptation of Alex’s own project, Nickel City Fifs, which he’ll be coproducing with the Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario (TNO) in June 2023.
