Thank you to everyone who joined us at Haley McGee's
WEATHER THE WEATHER or how we make it home together!

The cast and crew braved an ice storm, performed in a church warming centre, and shared the holiday spirit with enthusiastic and intrepid audiences.
What an amazing way to end 2013!

Haley McGee Brings an Original Fairy Tale to Evergreen Brick Works

or how we make it home together

by Haley McGee

Directed by Jennifer Brewin

Playing December 6-30, 2013 at Evergreen Brick Works
This production takes place entirely outdoors and travels around the historic site.

This December, Theatre Columbus returns to the historic Evergreen Brick Works to present WEATHER THE WEATHER or how we make it home together, an original fairy tale by acclaimed Toronto playwright Haley McGee.

Inspired by winter, the Canadian Shield and our indomitable compulsion to get home for the holidays, Haley has written a tale about the making of the Canadian character. She plucks familiar characters from northern folklore, lets them loose in the Don Valley Brick Works, adds a global storm and dares them to find their way home.

Join the invincible Theatre Columbus team — creators of the award-winning The Story — on an action-packed, spine-tingling adventure celebrating our ongoing obsession with inclement weather.

Vote for NOW Magazine's Best of Toronto

Theatre Columbus’ outdoor winter productions at Evergreen Brick Works have been recognized with a nomination for Best Site-Specific Theatre Company along with 360 Screenings, Convergence Theatre, Outside the March and Single Thread Theatre.

The companies nominated in this category all make performances in the many nooks and crannies around Toronto. We have worked with, cavorted amongst and shamelessly admired the artists from each of these companies and we recommend them all.

NOW Magazine’s ‘ Best of Toronto campaign is about showing off the craftsmanship of Toronto’s citizenry. And so we ask you to vote in the spirit this campaign – to celebrate and get to know our colleagues who also work outdoors, in odd spaces.

Vote early, vote often (just kidding) or don’t vote, but do check-out a few of this city’s fine companies and discover the great theatre that will be coming to a street corner/park/alleyway near you.

What A Year We’ve Had!

As this season winds down, we are proud to say that the 2012/13 season was a great success!

The 2012 winter show, The Story, was a huge hit, with a growing audience and enthusiastic support from the press. We can’t wait to return to Evergreen Brick Works next winter with our new play. Plans are already in the works and we know it’s going to be another exciting winter.

We had a blast in Ottawa with the premier of The Public Servant. The sold-out run, enthusiastic audiences, supportive community, and rave reviews made it an experience we’ll remember. Stay tuned to see where The Public Servant is headed next!

We can’t wait to share all our plans for the coming season. But for now, here are some links to reviews, so you can reminisce about this season.
