'THE URINAL DIALOGUES' Set to Premier at the Al Green Theatre 7/2

Where are men most vulnerable? That's not just a joke about anatomy, though it does sit nicely with the theme of Mark H. Albert's THE URINAL DIALOGUES, a fictional exposé of what men would say if they let their guard down at the same time as their flies. Catch the conversation at the Al Green Theatre July 2-13 as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival.

Tickets for this bathroom comedy about finding camaraderie are available beginning June 12 via www.fringetoronto.com, by telephone at 416-966-1062 (ext.1), or at the door.

Inspired by the empowerment women found in The Vagina Monologues, THE URINAL DIALOGUES' in-your-face innuendos mixed with the struggles of real relationships is the MANswer. Taking sound bites overheard in men's washrooms and expanding them into full dialogues through a series of vignettes, THE URINAL DIALOGUES uses both humour and humility to prove that men all have a lot more in common than the need to pee - that perhaps when men find themselves in the most vulnerable place, they can find the most vulnerable places within themselves.

There is plenty of bathroom humour but this is a place where everything can be "exposed". (Note: There is no nudity in this show). Real words and real issues; this is a place for men to speak candidly about the things they may feel are unspeakable. A show that is not just "taking the piss", THE URINAL DIALOGUES touches on real points of poignancy and what it means to be a man.

Spearheading this bathroom business is director Mario D'Alimonte whose Supperfesta at last year's Toronto Fringe earned a Fringe Patron's Pick. Other credits include Into The Woods (Steppin Out) and Tick, Tick... BOOM (Acting Up Stage). Representing the every-men are Holm Bradwell (The Heiress, Stage Centre; Much to Do About Nothing, Bard in the Park;Pen Pals, Atomic Johnson Productions Toronto Fringe 2009), Derrick Evans (Into the Woods, Steppin Out; The Laramie Project; Encore Entertainment; The Drowsy Chaparone, EMP), andplaywright/actor Mark H. Albert (All My Sons, Scarborough Theatre; Diary Of Ann Frank, Encore Entertainment; My Name is Asher Lev, Teatron).
