Passion Play

By Sarah Ruhl

Brought to Toronto's East End by Crow's Theatre


An epic three-part procession through
time and faith.

June 6th - 30th



Synopsis

Wildly ambitious in theme and scope, Passion Play is a three-part saga that examines a company of amateur actors staging a traditional passion play at three different historical moments: Elizabethan England, Nazi Germany and Reagan-Era America. This triptych explores the collision of religion, politics, and theatre, and how the stories we tell shape who we are as individuals and as a community. Written by two time Pulitzer Prize-nominee Sarah Ruhl (Eurydice, The Vibrator Play).

“the indie theatre event of the summer"
- The Toronto Star

Our production of Passion Play is an unique immersive performance experience in three parts, lasting approximately three and a half hours. Part One begins at Withrow Park, after which the audience and performers will process together to Eastminster United Church. The project has been collaboratively developed over the past two years by Outside the March, Convergence Theatre and Sheep No Wool, with the core creative team of: Mitchell Cushman, Amy Keating, Julie Tepperman, Aaron Willis, Alan Dilworth, Maev Beaty and Katherine Cullen.
