Concord Floral previews from October 12, opens October 16 and runs through to October 26 at The Theatre Centre in the Mainspace and is collaboratively directed by Erin Brubacher, Cara Spooner and Jordan Tannahill.Concord Floral is a million-square foot greenhouse located just above Highway 7 in Vaughan, Ontario. Abandoned for years, it is seen as a scourge by concerned parents in the nearby suburbs. But it is also a hangout and refuge for neighbourhood teens; a place all to themselves in which to throw parties, experiment, dream, dare, and come of age.As in Boccaccio's original, in which ten youth flee to an abandoned villa when the Black Death sweeps through medieval Florence, ten youth flee to the abandoned greenhouse when a mysterious plague descends upon their neighbourhood. But in Concord Floral, it is a plague they have brought upon themselves.Inspired by the real-life greenhouse in Vaughan (demolished in 2012), and the ways in which adolescents reclaim abandoned and unused spaces in their suburbs, Tannahill has written a lyrical, choral-driven play for mature audiences
