Toronto: Factory Theatre presents the world premiere of David Yee’s “among men”

Wednesday, March 23, 2022

Set in 1959, Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County, Canada. On the edge of spring, Canadian poets Al Purdy and Milton Acorn are finishing an A-frame cabin on Roblin Lake. In the coming decade all three of them – Al, Milt, and the A-frame – will become famous and change the face of Canadian poetry, but for now, all they have is the stench of sweat, whiskey, and words. From Governor General’s Award-winner David Yee, among men is a poetic and charged portrait of male friendship in uncertain times, and a story of how Canadian literature was changed forever.

With the return to in-person performances, FACTORY THEATRE has implemented a sliding scale ticketing structure with a $0 option. Tickets prices for among men range from $10 – $60, and include a limited number of $0 tickets for every performance. Audiences are invited to select the ticket price option that works best for them to experience theatre at Factory.


among men (April 23-May 15) is being sold at a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing while seated in the theatre and FACTORY THEATRE continues to require proof of vaccination and mask wearing for all audiences, artists, and staff. Full and up-to-date details on Factory’s COVID-19 safety protocols can be found at
