aug 7-17 | wolf at the door | playground series

The final instalment of our inaugural Playground Series, a summer series where we offer emerging producers the opportunity to "play" in our space over the summer, is upon us!  WOLF AT THE DOOR has its official opening tonight.  This is one you probably have already heard about: last summer it was our Rosedale on Robson Writer's Week play in development, playwright Tina Teeninga is a former apprentice, and it features PT regulars Rebecca deBoer (100 SAINTS YOU SHOULD KNOW), Tim Bratton (GODSPELL), Byron Noble (HOW TO WRITE A NEW BOOK FOR THE BIBLE), Kyla Ferrier (GODSPELL), and Lori Kokotailo (THE HUNGRY SEASON), directed by Kerri Norris (THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE).  That enough reasons for you to come check this humdinger of a play out?

A family is only as strong as the choices they make to stay together.

The Grenfells, peaceful artisan weavers living in Yorkshire, England, supply their neighbours and community with beautiful, quality garments.

Enter the Industrial Revolution, an idealistic factory heir, and a cousin with dangerous notions and each Grenfell must decide: will it be what they know, or a new way forward.

Harriet, all fists and fight, leads the charge. Sarah has her own plan and she’s not waiting for her father’s go ahead. And Susanna, wife and mother, torn between loyalty to her husband and a desire for justice. Times are changing, and in the Grenfell household, the women are making up their minds. The question is, can Matthias adapt and build a new world, or will he go down in the fight?

WOLF AT THE DOOR by Tina Teeninga
