Theatre doesn?t have much relevance anymore. Or so acclaimed playwright Darren O?Donnell tells us. The dynamics of unplanned social interaction, he says, are far more compelling than any play he could produce. So his latest show, A Suicide-Site Guide to the City , isn?t really a show; it?s an interactive chitchat about memory, depression, and 9/11,... more...

The selections in Fierce Departures , drawn from Dionne Brand’s work since 1997, delineate with searing eloquence how history marks and dislocates peoples of the African diaspora, how nations, concretely and conceptually, fail to create safe haven, and how human desire persists nevertheless. Through a widening canvas, Brand unfolds the (im)possibilities... more...
