Silversides Theatre Artist Series: The Creation Process of Concord Floral

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Concord Floral is an award-winning play that was created in 2014 by the trio Erin Brubacher (dramaturg), Cara Spooner (director) and Jordan Tannahill (playwright). It is set in Vaughan, Ontario. Suburbia. All the homes look exactly the same.

Standing in the middle of a field beyond the backyards of the suburbs, Concord Floral is a run-down one-million-square-foot abandoned greenhouse, where the neighbourhood teenagers come in search of privacy, freedom, and companionship. They hide their secrets there, in a place that could be considered their makeshift home.

Join moderator William Chesney (Associate Dean of Arts) for a conversation with Erin Brubacher and Cara Spooner about the process of creating Concord Floral, a play that blends the past and present, the forgotten and the remembered for a contemporary rendition of a haunting urban myth.
