Concord Festival

Concord Floral

Oct. 1-3 and Oct. 8-10, 2020
  • By Jordan Tannahill
  • Directed by Robin Nichol

Concord Floral is a one-million-square-foot abandoned greenhouse and a refuge for neighbourhood kids; a place all to themselves in which to dream, dare, and come of age. But hidden there is a secret no one wants to confront, and when two friends stumble upon it they set off an unstoppable chain of events, from shadows in parking lots to phone calls from the grave.

Drinking in America

Drinking in America

Nov. 26-28 and Dec. 3-5, 2020
  • Eric Bogosian
  • Directed by Wesley Eccleston

Winner of the 1986 Obie Award for Best New Play, Drinking in America is a full-length collection of hilarious, tough, and touching theatrical monologues. It is a wild, nightmarish ride through an America where success can excuse a lot of faults.

Due to recent changes in public health restrictions we are unfortunately unable to present this production to a live audience. However, it will still be available on video, starting Dec 7. For more info contact theatre@tru.ca.


Dimly Perceived Threats to the System

Feb. 18-20 and Feb. 25-27, 2021
  • By Jon Klein
  • Directed by Robin Nichol and Jeff Daniels

Marlys is a professional consultant specializing in coping strategies. Her husband, John, is a hard-working filmmaker finishing a documentary on family values. Their 13-year-old daughter drinks Coke for breakfast and spits in her schoolmates' sandwiches in a one-person campaign to outlaw luncheon meats. Normal life goes side-splittingly awry in this pill-popping, ultra-caffeinated domestic comedy about a nuclear family approaching meltdown.
