Sex T-Rex's award-winning fan-favourite SwordPlay: A Play of Swords returns to Toronto in a brand new /// EXTENDED CUT! /// More jokes. More swords.

Running January 4-14, 2018 on the Factory Theatre main stage as part of the Next Stage Theatre Festival!

Chandelier-swinging, epic adventure and swordfights, swordfights, swordfights await as we bring our signature cinematic style to the stage, dancing from The Princess Bride, to Final Fantasy, to Game of Thrones and dipping our rapier wit into all things sordid and sworded.
