Discussions of the Queer Bathroom Monologues:
The Queer Bathroom Monologues is a performance ethnography about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans- experiences in Canada's public facilities written by Sheila Cavanagh. The stories open our eyes to the secret sex life of the bathroom and to the gendered cultural politics of the gendered rooms. You will never look at the toilet the same way after witnessing the tragic and passionate reenactments of life in the water-closet.
The show premiered at the Toronto Fringe Festival, July 6-17, 2011, and won the Audience Pick Award. Sheila Cavanagh has since received SSHRC funding to professionally stage the production at Buddies in Bad Times theatre in 2013-2014. The play is currently touring and can be adapted for LGBTQ positive space campaigns, networks, and organizations in higher education; for undergraduate and graduate classrooms; academic and arts-based festivals; for high school classrooms, Gay-Straight Alliances, teacher professional development and faculties of education.The Cast and Crew:
