Concord Floral

By (author): Jordan Tannahill

Concord Floral is a one-million-square-foot abandoned greenhouse and a refuge for neighbourhood kids; a place all to themselves in which to dream, dare, and come of age. But hidden there is a secret no one wants to confront, and when two friends stumble upon it they set off an unstoppable chain of events, from shadows in parking lots to phone calls from the grave. It’s time for the teens of Concord Floral to start talking.

Reviews

“A brilliant modern Canadian fable.” —Annie Hodgins, Theatromania
“Artfully structured, yet full of suspense… it’s got style and substance—and is scary as all get out” —J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail
“Masterfully blends naturalistic dialogue, poetic lyricism and magic realism. Concord Floral is an ensemble choral piece that packs a theatrical and emotional punch” —Jon Kaplan, NOW Toronto
