University Players presents Les Belles Soeurs
Shows by the University Players never disappoint. Les Belles Soeurs is about “Germaine Lauzon [who] has won a million trading stamps and recruits her sisters, friends and neighbours to help her paste them into books so she can claim her prizes. As they stick, the women reveal deeply moving truths about their relationships to each other, the men in their lives, their children, their Church, and their society. Les Belles Soeurs has been called ‘the single most important event in the history of Quebec theatre’ and is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its premiere. It broke ground for giving a voice to Quebec working class women and is still raucous, poignant and incredibly funny.”
Warning: contains strong language.

The Windsor Writers Club is here for a night of “baked goods, monologues, music, and dancing!” All of the money from this event goes to the four shows being put on by the Windsor Writers Series this year. Bring a friend, grab a goodie, and listen to amazing local artists.
These three-hour sessions are all about “[rejeuvenating] your mind, body, and spirit with playful and expansive practices.”
If the artistic element doesn’t interest you as much, try out acro yoga with beer! Good news is, you don’t need a partner to sign up for this event. Breathe Aerial will be instructing the class and you can sign up through Breathe Pilates and Fitness.
If you’re interested in an event that’s more serious in tone, check out the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Round Dance taking place in the CAW Student Centre. This event will be put on by the University of Windsor Native Student Alliance and Windsor Law Indigenous Initiatives and it is “meant to bring bring awareness to the missing and murdered Indigenous women across Turtle Island by honouring them with acknowledgement and a round dance.” You can visit the event page for more details. .
Note: everyone should wear red in show of support.
