An Outside the March production
sponsored by Theatre Passe Muraille

VITALS is sold out! But if you didn’t get a ticket, there’s still hope.

Most performances, we’ll be releasing a small number of house seats for WALK UP SALES ONLY. We’ll also be admitting additional audience members when we can. Interested patrons should arrive at 149 Roncesvalles at least 30 minutes prior to the performance, as these tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. CASH ONLY AT THE DOOR.

Tickets are $35, with a $30 rate for arts workers, those Under 30 and Seniors (Tax and Fees included)

"Outside the March has done it again. Site-specific, realistic and environmental, Vitals is a theatrical piece that has to be experienced to be understood. And it does need to be experienced by everyone."
- The Charlebois Post

The experience begins at 149 Roncesvalles Avenue, at the corner of Roncesvalles Avenue and Garden Avenue (outside of Solarski Pharmacy).


Anna’s daily routine is life, death, bureaucracy.  Every call she receives is an emergency.  How much trouble is our city in? Vitals is a solo show presenting the story of Anna, a Toronto paramedic. Based on real interviews conducted with local EMS workers, Vitals weaves together a canvas of affecting, poignant and disturbing emergency stories and explores their impact on the responder to these calls.

"This exciting production is a real step forward for immersive theatre in this town."- The Globe and Mail

Playwright Rosamund Small burst onto the scene two years ago with her verbatim look at Occupy Toronto. Now she's sending you out into Toronto on an EMS emergency call, with this brand new site-specific experience.

Vitals: Paramedic Experience

The Call

Citizens of Toronto share the stories of their emergencies and the paramedics who arrived just in time.
