Free Pizza

“Are you Indigenous enough to be at this porn shoot?” Free Pizza is a messy and hypocritical coming-of-age porno that explores how being white-passing bleeds into even the most ridiculous situations. When it’s hard to say no and then hard to say yes, where do you even begin to start figuring yourself out?

Part of a triple-bill celebrating scripts hot off the printer from this year’s Playwrights Unit! Join us for a series of 30 minute staged readings, featuring excerpts from scripts created by three emerging playwrights from across the country.

Ethan Keyes

Ethan Keyes

Ethan Keyes is an Indigenous Irish creator who has equal energy to dance the night away or play video games until 4 am. Some things that matter most to him are his little siblings, being a giant goof, and being kind to everyone. Ethan is most keenly interested in technology in theatre and writing fantastical plays. To be honest, he doesn’t know exactly what he wants from this career but he knows he wants to create and give people as much love as he can. So that’s where he’ll start.
