The fifth edition of Urban Tales, described by its creators as a "naughty, anti-holiday storytelling extravaganza," will feature works by five local playwrights – Joseph Shragge, Simon Sachs, Jim Burke, Joanne Sarazen and Harry Standjofski, who also acts as director, live musician and storyteller – plus Death & Co., a classic by Yvan Bienvenue, the creator of Contes Urbains/Urban Tales. The stories will take us from a prison cell to the basement of the Ukrainian community centre, where we’ll meet the likes of murderers, puppets, barflies, imps and a virgin who doesn’t look like one (!). At Centaur Theatre, December 8 to 10, 16 and 17. www.centaurtheatre.com
