Sex T- Rex is a comedy theatre company based in Toronto. Founded as an improv company in 2008, over the past ten years Sex T-Rex has won over a dozen awards for their seven original plays and performed in sold-out houses across Canada. Masters of genre parody, our mandate is to present stories on stage that are typically the purview of the big screen- dusty westerns, post-apocalyptic action thrillers and explosive Buddy Cop comedies. Using innovative staging, improv, puppetry elements and the audience’s boundless imagination we create epic worlds with simple props and look to attract a new generation of theatre goers to live performance. We believe that comedy is all the more powerful when it is framed in an engaging narrative and that theatre is the perfect medium for challenging the tropes of modern storytelling. We regularly perform at such venues as The Second City, Comedy Bar, and Bad Dog Comedy Theatre where we are a company in residence.
WATCH OUT WILDKAT
Watch Out Wildkat is a hilarious and loving send up of the Western genre, complete with train explosions, bar brawls, bear fights, horse chases, and tumblin tumbleweeds all performed with simple props, puppetry and physical comedy. It’s set in the post-Civil War American South and tells the story of Wildkat McReady, a tough as nails bounty hunter who teams up with the Devil to find the man who murdered her Pa.
