From a media release:
Crow's Theatre Toronto Welcomes Audiences Back
Gloria Opens March 1, 2022
The to Streetcar Crowsnest have been reopened once again, and the company of GLORIA arrived to begin rehearsals. We are feeling very hopeful and look forward to gathering together again to experience the magic of theatre.
With a few exceptions, Crow's Theatre 2021.22 season continues as planned. GLORIA, “a whip-smart satire of fear and loathing in a beleaguered industry under siege” (NYT), will run March 1 to 20, 2022 in the Guloien Theatre.
GLORIA will be followed by the world premiere of a new George F. Walker play, ORPHANS FOR THE CZAR, a high-stakes comedy and a plea for decency, directed by Tanja Jacobs and starring Eric Peterson. The season closes with the “must see” (Radio-Canada) French production, SINGULIÉRES, direct from Quebec, a co-presentation with Théâtre français de Toronto.
Due to the impact of the Omicron wave, we are unable to move forward with the public workshop presentations of FIFTEEN DOGS. We wish to thank Margaret Atwood, Bob and Martie Sachs, and The Scott Griffin Foundation for their generous support of FIFTEEN DOGS in this development year, as well as the subscribers and patrons who purchased tickets. We have also decided to refocus our resources on the remainder of the live season, and will no longer be streaming digital versions of MIXTAPE and ORPHANS FOR THE CZAR.
We are working very hard to bring both FIFTEEN DOGS and BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO back to you next season.
- If you are a subscriber or ticket holder, you will hear directly from patron services.
Thank you so much for your continued support, we could not have come this far without you. Stay safe and see you at the theatre. - Crow's Theatre

The cast of GLORIA features Deb Drakeford, Carlos Gonzalez-Vio, Jonelle Gunderson, Savion Roach, Nabil Traboulsi, athena kaitlin trinh, and the design team of Jackie Chau, Chris Malkowski, and Chris Stanton.
