4 Joel Thomas Hynes The Gladstone

Joel Thomas Hynes at the Gladstone, Toronto, March 3, 2016

The following night saw the Hare return to Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel, where the New York lineup was joined by writer and actor Joel Thomas Hynes, who read from a new unfinished work. The evening ended with a reading of the poems of Al Pittman. This ritual, begun the previous night in New York, would continue throughout the Hare’s Canadian leg, each night’s performers taking a poem each, and delivering Pittman’s work without introduction or anecdote.
