Mortar & Pestle Productions celebrates their first show of the 2016 - 2017 Season, William Shakespeare's King Lear.

In this timeless and unrelentingly dark tragedy we watch as the title character gradually descends into madness after foolishly dividing his kingdom between two of his three daughters based on their flattery. We are thrown into the harsh world in which these characters live and quickly realize that no one is safe from the nature of life. We make mistakes. We are prideful. We fear. We love. We hurt. We age. We lose ourselves. We rebuild. It is through these challenges, decisions and follies that make the characters of King Lear so human, so relatably watchable, that we can't turn away; even when we want to.
Mortar & Pestle Productions is a  non-profit theatre company founded in 2015 by long time performer and lifetime Beaches resident, Melissa Beveridge. Comprised of a small board of directors and with undying support from Gerrard Art Space, Mortar & Pestle Productions is dedicated to challenging ourselves through thought provoking works while sharing our love of theatre and the arts with Toronto's East End community and beyond.

activities at the Beaches

The community in The Beaches area in Toronto started in 1793 and has a long and vibrant history. It started when the area was divided into lots by Alexander Aitken for Lieutenant Governor John Simcoe and the new owners, or their heirs, developed roads and settlements. As the villages grew, some owners fashioned recreational areas, which they often opened to the local population. Word spread and by the 1870's The Beaches became the summer resort for the residents of Toronto. As these small villages grew into Towns the City of Toronto eventually incorporated them into the City framework. In 1910 to 1920, the local governments began to buy the land that many of the private and commercial recreational areas occupied. Property purchases and renovation work progressed slowly, but in 1932 the Beaches Park opened and there has been no looking back, as growth and development in this area has continued.

Now, it is one of the most sought-after areas in the city and a place where locals and tourists alike, flock to for a relaxing evening walk, some good entertainment or just to look out on the serene waterfront. This website offers you the chance to stay up-to-date on events and other news that may be happening at your Toronto Beaches!


Beaches Home Grown

Beaches Home Grown is an innovative business that just opened in the Beaches area of Toronto. We offer organic edible gardening and landscaping services, and organic gardening workshops. We are a bike powered business working to break down the barriers of home based food production and increase people's knowledge of food production and regional food systems.

Our organic edible gardening and landscaping services, and organic gardening workshops can help people save money this summer by growing their own food instead of relying on the store bought produce which has become increasingly expensive.  Some of the foods that are going up the most in price including lettuce (up 17.9%), Tomatoes (up 11.9%), and Apples (up 16.6%)[1]can easily be grown in the GTA, making edible gardening a delicious and financially great choice.

Jamie Unwin, owner of Beaches Home Grown lived and worked on farms for three years in BC before completing her masters in Environmental Studies and Planning for Resilient Regional Food Systems from York University and a post graduate certificate in Food Security and Urban Agriculture from Ryerson University. She lives in the Beaches and works part time as an associate for Urban Food Strategies, one of Canada's only food systems planning firms. A desire to get her hands back into the dirt led her to start Beaches Home Grown in 2016.
