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.
Jordan Tannahill is a playwright, theatre director, and filmmaker. The Globe and Mail recently called Jordan “…the poster child of a new generation of (theatre? film? dance?) artists for whom ‘interdisciplinary’ is not a buzzword, but a way of life.” His plays have been presented across Canada, and his films have been exhibited at venues such as the Toronto International Film Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the British Film Institute. Jordan received the 2014 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama for his book Age of Minority: Three Solo Plays and Dora Mavor Moore Awards for his plays rihannaboi in 2013 and Concord Floral in 2015.
