Named one of Canada’s top 10 theatre productions in 2013 by The Globe and Mail, Post Eden is the breakthrough production of boundary-shattering playwright, director, and 2014 Governor General’s Award-winner JORDAN TANNAHILL.

Inspired by interviews conducted with real residents of Neighbourly Lane in Richmond Hill, and featuring a sumptuous silent film shot in their homes, Post Eden is a multimedia fantasia about an ordinary day in the life of a fractured family. Actors onstage interact with their filmic selves in disarming ways as the line between documentary and fantasy blurs: a teenage girl exhumes her dead dog in order to break a curse, while her estranged parents attempt to reconcile, to hilarious and tragic effect.

Created by one of the hottest young voices in theatre, Post Eden is a quiet and surreal story about the search for redemption and meaning in our everyday lives.

Contains mature themes and partial nudity.
