Description

Award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill is back with modern-day queer and feminist retellings of two momentous events—one historic, one mythic. Botticelli in the Fire imagines the famed painter Sandro Botticelli as an irrepressible seeker of love and pleasure, caught in sexual and political brinkmanship. In Sunday in Sodom, Lot’s wife, Edith, tells of the Biblical destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, but set in present day.

Reviews

“Tannahill’s work is witty, sexy, and audacious, with a strong emotional core.”

- Martin Morrow, Torontoist

“The best new Canadian play of the year.”

- Robert Cushman, National Post

“Jordan Tannahill’s bracingly fresh double bill takes fragments of stories from the historical record and turns them into plays for today, damning more than a few torpedoes as he goes.”

- Karen Fricker, Toronto Star
