“Everything I needed to know about emergency health care, I learned as a teenage hot dog vendor in downtown Toronto” Charlie Petch (perfomer/writer).

Award winning playwright, author, and spoken word performer Charlie Petch (They/He) tells true stories from their past as a 911 operator, hospital bed allocator, emergency room clerk, and street worker. “No one’s special at the hot dog cart” is filled with busking performance, novelty instruments, clown, tragicomedy, lessons in de-escalation technique, and a deep appreciation of street communities
