Ladies-in-Waiting (Fri. 10 May, 2013 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm)

After years of development and its debut at Toronto Fringe Festival last summer, Ladies-in-Waiting is coming as a fundraiser for First Unitarian.

Seduction, betrayal, beheadings... the wives of King Henry VIII have a few things they'd like to set straight!

Ladies-in-Waiting is a play that brings together several generations of women to explore aging, power, regrets, hindsight, and the pain of unrequited love. As Henry VIII lies dying, his six wives convene to throw his welcome to the afterlife party. This play will stimulate your brain, tug at your heartstrings, and give you something interesting to talk about!

Co-written and directed by Toronto First's very own Kate Kudelka, (NOW Magazine's "emerging artist to watch").

Twerty-Something Deep Sharing (Fri. 10 May, 2013 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm)

Afterwards we head down to the pub.

Advanced Care Planning Workshop (Sat. 11 May, 2013 9:30 am - 4:30 pm)

Find out how to ensure your wishes for medical treatment are followed. There is much more to writing an Advance Care Plan than simply filling in a form. The most important part of the planning process is to take time for reflection and discussion to ensure your Plan reflects your values, beliefs and wishes for end of life care.

Greg Robinson MD and Margo Holland, both members of First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto and dedicated members of Dying with Dignity, Canada, help you to understand all your choices in this important, interactive workshop.

Tea and coffee provided.  $10.00 or pay what you can.
