Crow's Theatre, Carlaw Avenue, Toronto, ON, Canada
February 25 – March 16
As democracies are challenged around the world, is there a radical hope to be found in the humble drama classroom? Award winning playwright Andrew Kushnir and U of T professor Dr. Kathleen Gallagher travelled the world to find out what hope looks like to young people. The result is Towards Youth, a timely documentary play that affords a rare window into the experiences, anxieties and dreams of people growing up in times of austerity, Trump, and Brexit.
Kushnir’s plays are “gritty, moving, disturbing, and sometimes funny. The use of language is astounding.” -TIMES COLONIST
“Kushnir has done an extraordinary thing in weaving all the material together and presenting the varying experiences of his subjects. Their stories resonate in the telling, and offer a rare and humanizing glimpse into an understandably guarded and mistrustful community.” -TORONTOIST
