Seventeen years ago, Isobel was murdered at the tender age of nine. Now she finds herself back in her previous life as a ghost searching for the person responsible for her untimely death. But this time she’s powerful, having the ability to watch over the living, observe them, and sometimes interact with them. Isobel has been paying attention to her former neighbours, and it’s not long before she begins to suffer along with them during their dark and horrific private experiences. Will she finally get the peace she’s been yearning for?

In 1991, Judith Thompson received a Floyd S. Chalmers Canadian Play Award for Lion in the Streets. Productions of the play have been held in a wide variety of North American locations, including Toronto, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Portland and Vancouver, but also Łódź, Poland. Judith was a playwright-in-residence at Tarragon from 1984-1989.

Lion in the Streets was first produced at Tarragon in November 1990.
