50 Shades of Vinyl–A Canadian Parody
Happysad Theatre

Wednesday, September 19 at 7:00pm

Kink has never been so polite! This trio of original stories spoofs a beloved Canadian radio program (you’ll know it when you hear it) with warmth, humour, and more than a little spice. A middle-aged couple embarks on a series of sexy misadventures after reading a popular book about kink. It does not go smoothly.

50 Shades of Vinyl is a funny, racy comedy that entertains more than it scandalizes. Part parody, part homage, and an overall gentle reminder that it’s never too late to try something new.
