Coming Soon

The Children

From November 6 to 25, 2018.


Second in our Essential Series is the 2018 Tony-nominated play, The Children, by British phenomenon, Lucy Kirkwood, recipient of the 2018 UK Writers’ Guild Award. A stellar cast—Geordie JohnsonLaurie Paton, and Fiona Reid—grace Centaur’s stage for a witty yet provocative look at our responsibility to the planet, each other and future generations.

The Legacy Series

Balconville by David Fennario

Three shows only from September 28 to 30, 2018.


As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, relive some of Centaur Theatre’s great theatrical moments with the Legacy Series, staged readings of critical and box offices successes.


David Fennario opens the series with his ground-breaking play, Balconville, a realistic and humorous look at working class neighbourhoods. If you missed it the first time around when it had its World Premiere in 1979, or are longing for a second go-around after all these years, here’s your chance!
