Phoenix Theatre Play: Weaksauce & Other Stories 

Go see a theatrical play on UVic's campus! Two-time Canadian Comedy Award winner Sam Mullins has been described as a “master storyteller” (Winnipeg Free Press) and the “Stuart McLean of the millennial generation” (Toronto Star). Weaksauce is the story of the summer that Sam turned 16 when he left home to work as a camp counsellor only to be blindsided by the first great romance of his life. This achingly angsty and tender coming-of-age story is a comedy of first times, second chances and third wheels.

October 11, 18, & 25
