You’re invited to a dinner party where everything is on the menu – big questions about theatre, how it connects to our daily lives, and how we relate to each other as human beings. Artists and audiences break bread together and discuss their burning questions at a dinner party taking place right in the heart of Tarragon Theatre.

Tarragon’s Supper Club events are hosted by Urjo Kareda Emerging Artist Resident Christine Quintana, and catered by AVIV Mediterranean Restaurant.

“An incredible evening — beyond what I expected in so many ways! …the beautifully laid table, the printed out menu, the thought provoking discussion questions; and the level of conversation was amazing — like sitting in on a master class! A truly remarkable event.” – Supper Club Participant

“I had rich, stimulating and eye-opening conversations about the theatre and art, while enjoying a delicious meal and connecting with new people! Thank you for this initiative.” – Supper Club Participant

Please note: You must purchase your meal or RSVP to this event in addition to purchasing your performance ticket. Attending the performance or purchasing a meal is NOT mandatory to participate in Supper Club events.

Toronto has been the site of storytelling and performance for thousands of years.

What role can theatres play in the process of reconciliation? What can non-Indigenous artists and audience members contribute?
