Something happened at the Concord Floral greenhouse. Nobody talks about it – until two girls uncover the horrifying secret. Now havoc has been unleashed, forcing ten teenagers to flee a mysterious plague they’ve brought upon themselves. Featuring ten young Ottawa actors, Concord Floral is a supernatural cellphone thriller with alternating kicks of conscience, cruelty, denial and morality. One of Canada’s fastest-rising artists, Governor General’s Award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill takes us to a surreal and gothic suburbia. This new work is a highly entertaining Canadian tale.
