Also featuring Scott Thompson, Mark McKinney, Colin Mochrie and Jessica Holmes, "Burnt Toast" is a series of eight comedic vignettes which were written by Dan Redican (story editor for Kids in the Hall). The stories follow the arc of the modern relationship from a darkly comedic viewpoint with each vignette using a different set of characters to tell stories from unrequited love through to marriage and on to divorce. What truly makes this project unique? It's an opera! That's right, all of the characters within these contemporary domestic settings spontaneously break out into grand operatic song in order to express even the most mundane thought - often with extremely funny results. This is achieved through pre-recording the tracks with famous opera singers and playing them back on-set where a mix of talented actors and opera stars bring these characters to life.
