Since 2007, brave adults across Canada have shared their own weird and wonderful childhood and teenage writing at Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, a live, onstage storytelling event.
The show’s primary goal is to entertain. But beyond that, the aim is to invite everyone — readers, live audience members, and radio/podcast listeners — to reflect on their own lives, to connect with who they used to be, and to draw a line that connects the past and the present.
Embarrassing, moving, and hilarious, these readings are powerful reminders of who we used to be. They’re compelling stories, at once deeply personal, yet surprisingly universal.

Mondays, 10pm, FREE: TRANZAC OPEN STAGE
Every Monday in the Southern Cross Lounge, The Tranzac hosts Toronto’s best open stage.
The Southern Cross is an intimate, cozy room with a piano, amps, & drum kit, and also happens to be one of the best-sounding rooms in the city. The crowd is a mix of regulars and newcomers, mostly acoustic but open to pretty much anything (including hip-hop, instrumental electric guitar, and spoken word) — it’s a great place to try out a new song or perform with a new band.
Sign up at 8 p.m., open mic at 10 p.m. Each performer plays two songs, and the night generally ends between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m.]]>
