Ring The Bell- The Truth be Told

Cate Mckim – social bloggerfly – by her own appointment and reviewer for Arts and Culture blogs on her “life with more cowbell” site about The Toronto Fringe Festival debut of  “The Urinal Dialogues“.

When the bell rings true,  then we should shout it out to all who will listen.  Yes, we have heard the distant sounds of dissent but…as it is said “the truth will set you free”! 

“Write on, Mckim… And damn’d be him that first cries, ‘Hold, enough!’ “

The Urinal Dialogues – Playing NOW

The Urinal Dialogues

by Mark H. Albert

presented by Mark My Words-Ink from Toronto, Ontario

A man walks into a bar’s urinal…Then what happens? The Urinal Dialogues happen. A play that takes a look inside the Men’s Washroom and asks the question-if men would talk, what would they say? Yes, there is bathroom humour but this is a place where everything can be exposed. Unpredictable and unabashed. Sometimes funny; sometimes poignant.

Director: Mario D’Alimonte

Choreographer: Music: Mark H. Albert,Wayne Cohen,Hartley Mandel

Cast: Holm Bradwell,Derrick Evans and Mark H. Albert Voiceovers: Evany Rosen and David Lang

Running Time: 58min.

Genres: Comedy, Drama

Mark My Words-Ink makes its debut with The Urinal Dialogues. Mark H. Albert, Producer and writer, has enjoyed appearing on the stages of numerous community theatres. This experience has allowed Mark My Words-Ink to hand-pick its director, cast and crew and contributors from amongst the best in Toronto, to present this engaging multi-textured work of both humour and drama.

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. 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 place where everything can be exposed.

Playing at the Al Green Theatre (JCC/MILES NADEL building- corner of Spadina and Bloor)
