NOVEMBER 5-15, 2015Venue: The Rachel Browne Theatre – 211 Bannatyne Ave. (at Main St)

Set against the backdrop of the banking crisis, a confrontation between a real estate agent and a tenant takes an unexpected turn. A snapshot in time of the effects of capitalism; how we all benefit from it, how we are all part of the system, and how we can all be greatly hurt by its effects. Iceland uses wit and dark humour to tackle the consequences of greed and our yearning to belong to something larger than ourselves.Iceland is part of the trilogy Fault Lines which was awarded the Governor General award for drama in 2013.“Iceland is a beautifully structured and extremely powerful play that haunts the mind. Billon is an original and exciting voice.” – Atom Egoyan
