The Globe and Mail has published its annual list of Toronto’s ‘Top 10 Theatre Productions of the Year’, with two Tarragon Theatre productions from 2014 earning a spot in the Top 10. Says Kelly Nestruck, “Four theatre companies dominate this list. Following a period of adjustments minor or major, Canadian Stage, Soulpepper and Tarragon Theatre are all back in the groove.”
Here is what they had to say about our productions of An Enemy of the People and Lungs, listed as #8 and #3 respectively.
“8. An Enemy of the People, Tarragon Theatre
Richard Rose recreated hip German director Thomas Ostermeier’s paintball staging of this endlessly topical Henrik Ibsen play with a top-notch Toronto cast. As exciting as the show itself was hearing from the young theatre artists inspired by it.”

“3. Lungs, Tarragon Theatre
It’s impossible to imagine a more perfect production of British playwright Duncan Macmillan’s love story about a couple afraid of environmental apocalypse than director Weyni Mengesha’s. Actors Lesley Faulkner and Brendan Gall were like two peas in a pod in it. Returns to Tarragon starting Dec. 31.”
