"Eight groundbreaking works, six Canadian playwrights, two world premieres...."
That's what Tarragon audiences have to look forward to this year as the company announced their line-up this morning via the web. In announcing the line-up Artistic Director Richard Rose said, “This is a season that truly celebrates Canadian artists, whether in new works from across the country and at home, or interpreting important works from away. I am thrilled to introduce two new exhilarating voices from the Prairies to Tarragon audiences – Geoffrey Simon Brown and Arun Lakra – with Toronto premieres of two provocative and insightful pieces, The Circle and Sequence respectively.
In addition, we are proud to present three productions from Tarragon’s own Playwrights-in-Residence: world premieres that delve deeply into the world we live in today by Erin Shields and Maria Milisavljevic (The Millennial Malcontent and Peace River Country) along with a remount of Hannah Moscovitch’s brilliant and unusual family drama, Infinity. We are also excited to bring two internationally acclaimed plays to Toronto audiences for the first time: the startling Broadway dramedy The Realistic Joneses by noted American dramatist Will Eno and the Toronto English-language premiere of the boundary-breaking contemporary romantic comedy, Midsummer (a play with songs) from across the pond by acclaimed Scottish playwright David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre.
And we are delighted to kick off the tour of an important Canadian play, The Watershed by Montreal‘s Annabel Soutar, after its huge success at PANAMANIA last summer. In its upcoming 46th season, Tarragon continues to be a welcoming and nourishing home for Canadian theatre-making.”
Cheers to that, and we'll see you at the theatre.
