Who you are on the court reveals who you are off the court. Monday Nights is an interactive basketball/theatre performance that invites you to lace up your sneakers and get in the game.

Who you are on the court reveals who you are off the court. Five men came together every Monday night and stayed until the lights turned off. They didn’t come to watch. They came to play.

Based on the ongoing real-life pickup basketball games played for the better part of a decade, Monday Nights is an interactive basketball and theatre experience with the same five men recreating their stories for the stage and exploring how a simple game can help us understand ourselves and connect to our community.

No matter your age, skill, knowledge or passion for basketball, lace up your sneakers, get off the bench and into the game – the ball is in your court.

At the 2017 Festival, Luminato announced an exciting new creative development and presentation initiative to support artists who have come through The Theatre Centre’s Residency Program. Established in 2004, this unique multi-disciplinary, long-term development program has led to the creation of many significant works by Canadian performing artists. Each year, this partnership between Luminato and The Theatre Centre will provide a past Residency artist with the means to revisit their work and have it presented as part of Luminato.
