APR 26 - MAY 15, 2016
A joyfully apocryphal re-telling of two momentous events: one historic, one mythic - from Governor General's Award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill – Canadian Stage's 2015 Playwright in Residence.

Botticelli in the Fire

While painting The Birth of Venus, famed artist and bon-vivant Sandro Botticelli becomes entangled in sexual and political brinkmanship that puts a lot more than his masterpiece at stake.

Sunday in Sodom

In the Bible, she goes unnamed, known only as Lot's Wife: the impertinent woman who was turned to a pillar of salt for looking back to behold God's destruction of her hometown. In Sunday in Sodom, Edith recounts how her husband Lot welcomed two visitors into their house and the destruction that followed.

"First rate... the company's season ends on a high note"

- TORONTO STAR

Botticelli in the Fire is "ambitious and entertaining", Sunday in Sodom "could not be bettered"

- THE GLOBE AND MAIL

Jordan Tannahill | Playwright

Jordan Tannahill is a playwright, theatre director and filmmaker. His plays have been presented across Canada, and his films have been exhibited at festivals and galleries including the Toronto International Film Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the British Film Institute. Jordan received the 2014 Governor General's Award for Drama for his book Age of Minority: Three Solo Plays, the 2014 John Hirsch Prize for directing, and a Dora Award for rihannaboi95 in 2013 and for Concord Floral in 2015. His book Theatre of the Unimpressed, published by Coach House Press in 2015, was called "essential reading for anyone interested in the state of contemporary theatre and performance" by The Globe and Mail. In collaboration with William Ellis, Jordan runs the alternative art-space Videofag, out of a defunct barbershop in Toronto's Kensington Market. Up next, Jordan will be performing alongside Christopher House in their new dance piece Marienbad, at the Toronto Dance Theatre (May 26 - June 4, 2016).
