Mr Brown & His Globe – TAC funds workshop of new work

Single Thread is excited to announce that the Toronto Arts Council is funding a workshop of Mr Brown & His Globe, an original new work by Anthony MacMahon and Alex Dault about George Brown, owner of The Globe newspaper, and the printers’ strike of 1872.

The two week workshop will focus on the staging possibilities for presenting multiple worlds simultaneously and making the text performance ready. The play is planned to be staged as a site specific piece, so a location that can approximate the George Brown house will be secured for these workshop dates.

The workshop will take place in early 2018.
