Now celebrating it’s 16th birthday, b current and one of Toronto’s newest companies Theatre Archipelago join forces for the Canadian premiere of Fallen Angel and the Devil Concubine! This venerable work from Jamaica’s GroundWork Collective makes its way onto the Toronto artistic scene with a fresh adaptation after successful runs in the USA and England. 

Also widely produced in varying countries in the Caribbean, Fallen Angel and the Devil Concubine illustrates one of contemporary dramatic works of the region, which deftly evokes the cultural and socio-political environment permeating the everyday lives of the populace in these island nations. “Fallen Angel and the Devil Concubine” crosses the cultural and regional divide in several ways, and shows that though the locale and time may differ, the issues that the homeless and poor face parallels greatly within our own communities. With this incredible story unraveling in the belly of Toronto’s historic Parkdale neighborhood, this performance will ignite sparks of understanding, compassion and emotion. (
