Event

Hogtown
Audiences of "Hogtown" will be taken on a journey through time to December 31, 1926 at the hottest Speakeasy in Toronto during the Prohibition era. The Campbell House is where everyone  from politicians to newspapermen, show girls to girls-next-door, thugs to businessmen and everything in between  comes to play. It's the night before Election Day and everyone at the Campbell House has a different agenda. There are mobsters looking to cause some trouble, politicians hoping to sway the vote and forbidden romance that's about to erupt. You never know what you'll find in the rooms of the club. The best way to find out is to explore. Set at Toronto's historic Campbell House, this immersive theatre experience will bring audiences on an adventure they'll never forget.

THE STORY

It's the night before a big Toronto election (in fact, as the night before Election Day, it's also New Year's Eve). Not exactly the place you'd expect to find the two frontrunners and yet on this night both incumbent Thomas Foster and chief rival, Councilman Sam McBride will make an appearance. But they're not here JUST to squeeze votes out of the club's patrons. There's something else going on, for both of them.  

Foster is here to meet with Union boss, Bob Delacourt  he's the one with the real power in this town. Delacourt has the power to sway the election, one way or the other, as his members will vote the way Delacourt directs them. In return, Delacourt demands that his drivers get a minimum wage raise  a tough order for the notoriously penny pinching mayor. Foster also knows that, currently, Delacourt and his membership are backing McBride in this race. Foster is here to make a deal whatever it takes, including a threat to Delacourt (contained in a manila envelope).

Tonight there's rumour of a surprise visitor: Frank Vitalli himself, looking to forge a new market in Toronto. Even though he's famous for saying "I don't even know what street Toronto is on."
