To swoon is to faint. To become enraptured. To enter a state of hysterical ecstasy. How can it happen? Through a fire-alarm romance. Sending tapes to a former lover. Trying to hold on to your wife. The Nation of Brohams, in association with jsquared.theatre are proud to present Swoon!, a brash, highly theatrical and wondrous look at young people, desire and the absolute moments of our lives. Featuring new work from some of the city's most exciting theatre-makers, including Jordan Tannahill, Jessica Moss, Jason Maghanoy, Chris Mitchell, Ryan Griffith, Paul Robinson, Haley McGee and Alisa Palmer, Swoon! is a play about how we meet, how we stay together, how we fall apart... and how we meet again.

Part of the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival!

Nothing by Mouth

Five portraits of voices silenced by the state: an ex-gang leader, a dictator's wife, an activist, a disabled patient, a Canadian youth... each in their final, all-too-human moment. A piece that explores the ways we collectively punish with, and permit, death.

Being developed through a residency at Theatre Passe Muraille.
