Only one more day to till the weekend!
Here are 5 things happening in and around Victoria today.

What: Dads are you struggling with a basic ponytail and have no idea how to even start with braiding? If so this class is for you! There is no prior hair knowledge required.

What: This theatrical and wildly funny play is a quirky comedy centred on Matilde, a young Brazilian cleaning woman who hates to clean and would rather be a comedian. Matilde works for Lane, a sharp doctor who is perfectly satisfied with her structured life. Lane’s sister Virginia loves to clean and sets up her own deal with Matilde, hoping that Lane doesn’t catch on. But Lane’s attention is diverted when she discovers that her husband and co-worker, Charles, is leaving her for his patient, the older and vivacious Ana. The Clean House is a piece written in the genre of magical realism; it’s a comedy about cancer, death, and love that dares to laugh in the face of trauma and celebrates the beautiful chaos of a messy life.
