Written & Performed by Johnnie McNamara Walker

Johnnie Walker, one of Toronto’s foremost Gay, Ginger, Millennial Playwright-Performers, presents a deep-dive into the shocking world of Heterosexuality! 

THEY WALK AMONG US! But where did they come from? And what do they think they’re wearing? Find out in this explosive solo show based on undercover research gathered while posing as one of their own! Combining elements of storytelling, satire, comedy, and deep personal humiliation, The Heterosexuals is here to spill the T on what The Queers really think about The Straights.

Fresh off an acclaimed run at the Edmonton Fringe, this will be the Toronto premiere of Johnnie Walker’s newest, most personal, and most provocative solo show to date!
