Cahoots Theatre presents

LIFT OFF! Scarborough

This November, Cahoots Theatre brings their Festival of New Work to Scarborough and is thrilled to be able to share works relevant to the communities of one of the most diverse parts of Toronto, with works in Tamil, English and Mandarin!


THE ENCHANTED LOOM | மந்திரத் தறி



The Sri Lankan civil war has left many scars on Thangan and his family, most noticeably the loss of his eldest son and crippling epileptic seizures brought on by his torture during the war. As the final days of the war play out; the family watches from Toronto, where a neurological procedure provides a chance to heal. This poetic play, part medical, part mystical is a harrowing tale of loss and hope that reminds us of the joys and pain of unconditional love for family, and freedom.

The Enchanted Loom was originally developed by Cahoots Theatre and had its World Premiere in November of 2016 produced by Cahoots Theatre in association with Factory Theatre. This year, Cahoots Theatre is thrilled to partner with Asylum Theatre Group and present a reading of the Tamil translation of the play by Dushy Gnanapragasam.

Original Play written by Suvendrini Lena

Translated by Dushy Gnanapragasam
