Waiting for Christmas: An Improvised Samuel Beckett

On the night before Christmas, standing on a near-empty stage in the middle of somewhere, two unusual improvisers wait for something to happen.

Bicycle Polo!

A friendly and diverse group of folks who enjoys playing not-so-competitive pickup games every Wednesday night. They welcome all those who want to come watch, hang out or get on the court.

  • When: 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Where: Fernwood Community Centre, 1240 Gladstone Avenue
