What really goes on in the men's room? A meeting of the minds, a confluence of ideas, a personal search for meaning?  Here's the hook—yes, there is, in fact, a woman in the men's washroom.

Public washrooms are a necessary evil. They're smelly, kinda drab, always dirty, and the people inside them are complete and total strangers. But we use them every day. Everyone does, from the high-powered lawyer on her way to a business meeting, all the way down to the penniless homeless man, covered in filth. "Occupied" is a snapshot of the downtown LRT washroom on any typical weekday morning, and asks the question that has plagued mankind for centuries: out of margarine and cream cheese, which is the healthier bagel topping?

"Occupied" is a brand new script for the 2008 Edmonton International Fringe Festival!
