Lauren picked up a copy of
Concord Floral by Jordan Tannahill (Playwrights Canada Press) this week and was very excited when it was nominated for a GG Award two days later!
"I picked up Jordan Tannahill's now GG-nominated play, Concord Floral, perhaps superficially... I was so attracted to the gorgeous cover. Little did I know that I'd found the perfect scratch to my insatiable Stranger Things itch: this story of suburban teenagers grappling with a mysterious plague and devastating secret is alternately heartbreaking, hilarious, and terrifying (sometimes within the same line). These kids are so real. They took me back to my own teenage claimed spaces, my own Concord Florals. Read it a Thanksgiving afternoon and take yourself back, too."
