Concord Floral, a vast and eerie abandoned greenhouse, serves as a clandestine hangout for neighbourhood teens. Here, they throw parties, build friendships and identities, and establish hierarchies amidst discarded furniture and urban wildlife. However, when a secret buried under the floorboards is uncovered, the teens are compelled to confront something they’d rather ignore. Award-winning Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill has crafted a suspenseful and stylishly structured play that delves into the complexities of adolescence.

A group of teenagers’ lives are interrupted by a haunting—by a ghost, or a spirit, or a spectre (whatever you want to call it). The manifestation of guilt, of grief, of the soul-crushing weight of being unable to escape the consequences of their actions.
They are messy.
They are loud.
They are all trying their best.
We are searching for the emergence of joy and celebration amongst hardship, and finding softness in industrial and angular architecture.
How do we continue to gather after conflict?
How do we both give and take space amongst community?
How do we practice agency alongside accountability?
Come to our world of broken glass, sticks and dirt, and McFlurries in the parking lot.
Come laugh with us.
Come to dance.
As we keep running.
