Habitat

“This is your home. This is your home boys and girls. Now and forever. This is your home.”

…a playwright as good as Judith Thompson is a miracle.

The Globe and Mail

The desperate struggle to find a home clashes with the fierce battle to protect what is familiar, in this powerful play by Judith Thompson (Lion in the Streets, Perfect Pie).

Mapleview Lanes, a posh neighbourhood in upscale Toronto, is the picture perfect community – until Lewis Chance moves in and opens a Group Home for troubled teens. As the teens struggle to fit in with the well-kept flower beds and beautifully tree-lined streets, the affluent residents – afraid of break-ins and plummeting property values – fight to have the home shut down. An award-winning team of Edmonton’s most compelling performers team up with acclaimed director Marianne Copithorne to present this gripping, captivating new drama.
