Review: WITHROW PARK at Tarragon Theatre

In WITHROW PARK, Morris Panych’s new play at Tarragon Theatre, we see a view into a neighbourhood a little less than 7 kilometres away from where we sit.

Review: PAINT ME THIS HOUSE OF LOVE At Tarragon Theatre

Though her style may not be for everyone, Woolley is clearly a talent to watch, displaying a range of abilities in her twisty, complex script.
