Shaping Stories With Six New Plays


At Factory, we have been exploring the idea of Canada by questioning what makes something a Canadian classic, and how our shifting population is changing Canadian identity. This season I’m excited to present a collection of work that takes a fresh look at how we tell Canadian stories.


This year includes work that will playfully challenge traditional theatrical conventions, expand the concept of storytelling, and confront audiences with complex and sometimes dangerous questions.


This season is a showcase of work created and helmed by artists familiar and new; from here and beyond Toronto; created through partnerships with exciting Canadian companies; featuring a slice of Canada's best theatrical work; and furthering the connection between audience, space, imagination, and text.


See you at the theatre
