Passion Play by Sarah Ruhl
Three of Toronto's leading indie theatre companies, Outside the March, Convergence Theatre, and Sheep No Wool present the Canadian premiere of Passion Play by Sarah Ruhl. Brought to Toronto's East End by Crow's Theatre.
Ambitious in theme and scope, this provocative work spans the years 1575-1984 and explores the intersections of religion, politics, and theatre. Often compared to Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, Passion Play by Sarah Ruhl is an epic cycle of three plays, each one depicting a small community’s presentation of a traditional passion play in in three historical periods: Elizabethan England, Nazi Germany and late Twentieth Century America.
Passion Play is an immersive performance experience in three acts. Act One begins in Toronto's beautiful Withrow Park, after which the audience and performers will walk together across the Danforth to Eastminster United Church's magnificent auditorium for Acts Two and Three.
Tickets can be purchased online or in person at Withrow Park beginning one hour before showtime.
