The Assembly: Episode 1

October 25 - November 3, 2018

Porte Parole and Crow’s Theatre present The Assembly: Episode 1

Playwright(s): Alex Ivanovici, Annabel Soutar & Brett Watson

directed by:
Chris Abraham

Annabel Soutar, Alex Ivanovici and Brett Watson team up with Chris Abraham to create a thrilling theatrical response to the rise of extremism and tribalism in political discourse today. Since 2017, the play’s creative team has been curating and recording encounters in which four Canadians of wildly different ideological leanings face off and collectively confront the issues that most divide them. This new serialized documentary project premieres in Toronto with The Assembly: Episode 1.

There was like food on the counter.  With the food and people - It just felt like a cozy environment, kind of like a family dinner. Where you can sit down and like have a good discussion.  Like a back and forth discussion, you know what I mean?

- James, 21 years old, conservative
