This special FUNdraiser & Awareness event marks the second collaboration between ATGT and ACCM. At our previous event 1,000$ was raised for ACCM’s support services. It is our mutual goal to meet or surpass that amount with this initiative; together we can accomplish so much!

Our collaboration with Acts To Grind Theatre is in support of ACCM’s Buddy Program, which pairs members with volunteers to provide emotional and practical support. We find ourselves having to meet increased needs for support with an aging membership. In the midst of government funding cutbacks, it’s thanks to the generosity of our donors and fundraising events such as this that we are able to provide lifesaving programming and support for those living with HIV and hepatitis C.

About the Play:

True Love Lies is a gut wrenchingly moving dark comedy that promises to be a great opportunity to experience Brad Fraser’s, Canada’s Bad-Boy of Theatre, brilliant writing once again. The rapid fire dialogue and action moves along at an incredibly fast pace, the language is very dense, almost like Shakespeare, and it’s filled to the brim with fantastic humorous Brad Fraser wit. The character David McMillan returns for a fourth appearance in one of Fraser’s plays; is he Fraser’s alter-ego perhaps? In this provocative, challenging sexualized sitcom-cum-family-explosive sexcapade, McMillan, now a successful restaurateur, returns to Yorkville after a twenty-year absence. The stars crisscross and collide with his close college-days friend Kane Sawatsky, now a successful Interior Decorator and family man, causing mayhem and bedlam to ensue. The bonds of friendship, family values and business relations are put to the test; can they remain steadfast and withstand, uninterrupted by the truths behind the lies told to those we love in order to protect them, once the truth is revealed?
