potosí thumb

Winner of the 2014 Toronto Fringe New Play Contest and the 2014 My Theatre Award for Best Original Work, the critically acclaimed and sell-out hit Potosí returns for a limited run in an updated production.

 

A young emissary from a Canadian mining corporation is sent to a remote country to investigate reports of sexual violence at the mine. As ethnic civil war breaks out, she is taken hostage at gunpoint by a former miner. A psychological game of cat-and-mouse ensues in this darkly funny parable on colonialism, gender, and greed.

two - character thumb

.

Written by: Tennessee Williams

Directed by: Amy Keating

 

Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour―brother and sister―find themselves deserted by the trope in a decrepit “state theatre in an unknown state.” Faced (perhaps) by an audience expecting a performance, they enact “The Two-Character Play”―an illusion within an illusion, an “out cry” from isolation, panic, and fear.

 

“I think it is my most beautiful play since Streetcar,” Tennessee Williams said, “and I’ve never stopped working on it….It is a cri de coeur, but then all creative work,all life, in a sense is a cri de coeur.”

collected thumb

Written by: Donald Margulies

 

Collected Stories chronicles the 6-year relationship between a renowned writer and her protege. A vicious power struggle thrums just beneath the surface of an otherwise cordial relationship. As success, competition, and appropriation of voice begin to divide the two, old wounds are torn open and the play poses one of art’s most profound questions:

 

Whose stories are we allowed to tell? Whose stories are we allowed to steal?

 

Where: Tarragon Workspace

 

When: May 6th-21st @ 8:00PM

Centred on the lives of a group of workers in an industrial hog-slaughtering facility, Abattoir chronicles and exposes the intense ethical, environmental, political, and racial tensions which underlie the global meat-production system.
