How did Trump be­come pres­i­dent? How did a Toronto may­oral can­di­date with white su­prem­a­cist views get 25,000 votes? We’re liv­ing in a time of ex­trem­ism and trib­al­ism. This play, the first part of se­ri­al­ized doc­u­men­tary theatre project, ex­am­ines how we got here. Based on hours of in­ter­views with peo­ple of all po­lit­i­cal stripes, this seg­ment looks at the is­sue of im­mi­gra­tion and free speech. A part­ner­ship be­tween Crow’s and Mon­treal’s Porte Pa­role (The Wa­ter­shed), co-cre­ated by Annabel Soutar, Alex Ivanovici and Brett Wat­son, the Chris Abra­ham-di­rected show brings to­gether left and right for a scripted di­a­logue, with a sec­tion for au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tion. Like all Porte Pa­role shows, be pre­pared to talk about it af­ter­wards. 8:30 pm. $25-$50. 345 Car­law. Runs to Novem­ber 3. crow­sthe­atre.com.
