To fuel gruelling cheering sessions, the chefs whip up gourmet burgers, classic sandwiches, and fried snacks as bartenders quench thirsts with frothy pints. Pool sharks assemble around the billiards tables, which can be transformed into ping-pong tables with the addition of a removable overlay or beds with the addition of a pillow and blanket.

Written and performed by Daniel Arnold and Medina Hahn of DualMinds, the same forces behind the internationally acclaimed Tuesdays & Sundays, Any Night unweaves a tale that tests the thin line between trust and fear. A young woman plagued with night terrors and sleepwalking begins a romance with the man living above her, who, for unknown reasons, appears to know the woman abnormally well. Elements of romance, terror, and intrigue contribute to the overall theme of the story, creating a compound that is both compelling and capable of beating up a vampire. Any Night has received critical acclaim in Toronto and Vancouver and is now in development as a feature film.
