Description

A double bill by playwright Jordan Tannahill, recently awarded the Governor General's Award for English-language drama and a Canadian Stage OAC/Playwright-in-Residence

Botticelli in the Fire
When Sandro Botticelli, a seeker of beauty and pleasure, is accused of 'keeping a boy', his close friendship with fellow painter and bon vivant Andrea del Verrocchio, and his young apprentice Leonardo Da Vinci, is put to the ultimate test when he realizes he must sacrifice more than just his art.

Sunday in Sodom
In the Bible, she goes unnamed, known only as Lot’s Wife: the impertinent woman who was turned to a pillar of salt for looking back to behold God's destruction of her hometown. In Sunday in Sodom, Aida recounts how her husband Lot welcomed two American soldiers into their house, the fury this sparked in their village and the destruction that followed.
