Tarragon Theatre is Canada’s home for groundbreaking contemporary plays.

Mandate

Tarragon Theatre’s mission is to create, develop and produce new plays and to provide the conditions for new work to thrive. To that end, the theatre engages the best theatre artists and craftspeople to interpret new work; presents each new work with high quality production values; provides an administrative structure to support new work; develops marketing strategies to promote new work; and continually generates an audience for new work.

As a complement to the new work created here, Tarragon presents new plays from all parts of the country, revives significant Canadian plays and produces international work, contemporary and classical. Long-term dramaturgy, tailored to the play and playwright, is a priority at Tarragon. Programs for play development are various and flexible ranging from Resident Playwrights to WorkSpace Programs.

Of great importance is the training of artists, administrators and production personnel from students to professionals in the creation, development, interpretation and production of new work. Education and outreach activities — to artists, to young people, to educators, and to our general audience — are designed to foster an understanding and appreciation of the process of creating new plays. Tarragon’s venue is used extensively to support the creation and development of new works by other theatre artists, through space made available for rehearsals, workshops, and productions.

Land Acknowledgment

Tarragon Theatre would like to acknowledge this sacred land on which we gather and operate is the traditional territory of the Wendat, The Seneca, the Mississaugas of the Credit, and any other nations who cared for the land in its history.

The territory is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to work in the community, on this territory.
