32C is a one-woman play by Amanda Parris that explores the baggage that three generations of women accumulate, carry and unpack through their intimate relationships. The play moves across time, borrowing from settings such as the Salem witch trials, the Grenada Revolution and toonie-Tuesday movie nights at Sheridan Mall in Toronto.  The audience is invited to ride on the 32C Eglinton West bus as a triptych of stories reveal the ways masks are constructed, armour is tightened and baggage is carried and passed on.
