You’ve probably heard of the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Hulk… but have you heard of Jack Kirby, the man who brought them all to life? King Kirby explores how the comic book artist, writer and editor poured his life into his comics, and the fateful mistake he made that sent him into obscurity.

Concord Floral
Theatre Junction
Theatre Junction GRAND

April 13-16


When a plague descends on a surreal and gothic suburbia, ten teens flee to Concord Floral, a long-abandoned greenhouse seen by parents as a scourge, and by their kids as an escape. Together, they keep each other company while they wait for the mysterious plague to pass. Concord Floral was written by the 2014 Governor General’s Award winner Jordan Tannahill, who, at only 26 years old, has been described as “one of Canada’s most promising young independent theatre artists.”

Benefit
Downstage
Motel Theatre at Arts Commons
April 13-30


Greg sits in a dark room while his wife Srey, a Cambodian immigrant, prepares to speak at a glittering gala in support of the foundation that saved her life. Greg has just discovered an explosive secret that threatens to destroy not only his marriage, but also the thousands who benefit from the foundation’s work supporting education for girls around the world. This world premiere production asks the question: what would you be willing to sacrifice for the greater good?

Tim’s life is at a crossroads. Behind him: his paralyzing past in the conservative church and reparative therapy to try to “cure” his homosexuality. Before him: a crucial decision about the future of his faith and the role it will play in his life. This semi-autobiographical play is presented in two acts; act one is a 60-minute staged reading, and act two
 is a conversation with the audience, allowing for reflection, feedback and dialogue.
