SEPT 27 - OCT 16, 2016
Concord Floral is a one million-square-foot abandoned greenhouse and hangout for neighbourhood teens. When two friends stumble upon a terrible secret buried there, they go looking for answers and set off a chain of events that can't be stopped. Told by an ensemble of teenage performers and set in contemporary Vaughan, Concord Floral re-imagines Boccaccio's medieval allegory The Decameron, in which ten teens must flee a mysterious plague they have brought upon themselves.

Initially developed at Canadian Stage as part of the 2012 Festival of Ideas and Creation, this 2015 Dora Winner for Outstanding New Play takes on a new life at the Bluma Appel Theatre as we transform the stage for an intimate actor-audience experience.

"Packs a theatrical and emotional punch"
