TORONTO - We are living in turbulent times. There is, from our perspective, anger and confusion alongside resilience and creativity in our neighbourhoods and around the world. Politically, there are things to watch out for along with a sense of unity as communities come together to make the world a better place.

These small acts of resistance are what drive lemonTree creations as we move into spring 2017. This year starts off quite busy and we couldn't be more excited. In each of our projects, there is an investigation of our humanity and desire to understand how we relate to each other.

APRIL and JUNE 2017
ON TOUR
MSM [men seeking men] 

This tour marks the first time lemonTree will be performing outside of our home base and we couldn't be more thrilled to take our critically acclaimed show MSM [men seeking men] to three different cities.  MSM was a top grossing show at the Fringe Festival (2013) where it was first presented and went on to premiere as part of the World Pride festivities in Toronto (2014).

Concept and Direction by INDRIT KASAPI
Dramaturgy by JONATHAN SEINEN
Production Design by JOE PAGNAN

National Tour
In The Soil Arts Festival, St. Catherines, ON April 28 - 30
Intrepid Theatre's OUTstages, Victoria, BC June 23
Queer Arts Festival, Vancouver, BC June 20 & 21

If you're in Toronto and cannot make any of these shows don't fret. There will also be a ONE NIGHT ONLY presentation of the show in Toronto in June. Stay tuned for those details!

MAY 2017
WORLD PREMIERE
Rope Running Out

The ties of Nacio and Félix's love have begun to fray. Evolution is necessary for their non-sexual partnership - but something holds Nacio back. When a footloose drifter from his past appears, Nacio must make a decision: stay bound or let go completely.

In this sexy, intimate, and unflinching new work award-winning playwright Raf Antonio explores the power of the erotic and asks the question, 'if we are multidimensional, can any one person truly be enough?'

Written by RAF ANTONIO
Directed by INDRIT KASAPI

This production marks the first time lemonTree will produce a show inside our downtown {studio} at King and Bathurst.

MORE INFO COMING SOON

Rope Running Out was initially developed at the Soulpepper Playwrights Circle 2015 and subsequently developed at Cahoots Theatre's Hot House Creators Unit 2015-2016. Raf Antonio acknowledges the support of the Toronto Arts Council through their Grants to Individual Playwrights 2016.
