Description

#ConcordFloralyyj

“Masterfully blends naturalistic dialogue, poetic lyricism and magic realism. Concord Floral is an ensemble choral piece that packs a theatrical and emotional punch”

—Jon Kaplan, NOW Toronto


“Artfully structured, yet full of suspense… it’s got style and substance—and is scary as all get out”

—J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail


“A brilliant modern Canadian fable.”

—Annie Hodgins, Theatromania


CONCORD FLORAL by Jordan Tannahill

Produced by Theatre SKAM

Directed by Kathleen Greenfield

Theatre SKAM presents the Vancouver Island premiere of the national hit, Concord Floral by Jordan Tannahill, in classic SKAM fashion: in an abandoned retail outlet. This site-specific production will feature two rotating casts of ten local Greater Victoria teens in a production that will remain in the minds of Victorians for years to come.

Concord Floral is a million square foot abandoned greenhouse and a hangout for neighbourhood kids. But something has happened there. Something nobody wants to talk about. Concord Floral re-imagines Giovanni Boccaccio's medieval allegory The Decameron in a contemporary Canadian suburb, in which ten teens must flee a plague they have brought upon themselves. The play was written by Governor General Award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill and originally created by Erin Brubacher, Cara Spooner and Jordan Tannahill with a cast of teenagers in Toronto.

This shows features two casts, named "Concord" and "Floral" which present two interpretations of this resounding play and you can check out both back-to-back!
