The Mating Game to Play Toronto Fringe Festival

The Mating Game to Play Toronto Fringe FestivalIt's a different dating scene today for those who have been married, are over 40 and trying to find their way in this new love jungle (while dragging old baggage). Aging GenX and Boomers alike are trying to connect through cell phones and hip coffees. Full of technology, emojis, new acronyms and adventures-- dating can feel impersonal, selecting companionship from mug shots, hoping for the ideal and fearing the worst.

The Mating Game is a play about love which aims to help us face our fears and laugh at them. Produced by Rewritesrewires in association with The Toronto Fringe Festival, The Mating Game is written and directed by Dennie Theodore known in business as a networker/connector of people and mentor. Turning her attention to the personal side of relationships seemed a logical next step. Given her parallel experience in theatre, the stage was set.

Tired of the stigma women face in business and personal lives as they age, Dennie opens the conversation in a show that mixes sketch, improvisation, audience participation and a smattering of tongue-in-cheek advice to lead the audience through moments that are all too real and too surreal.

Will you recognize yourself or your friends? It will be hard not to!
