Originally produced in 1987, Toronto, Mississippi was the first full-length play by Joan MacLeod. It centers on an unconventional family – father King (an Elvis impersonator), mother Maddie, daughter Jhana (who is developmenally delayed), and their boarder, Bill (a sometime poet). Love, family, creation, and self-destruction are just some of the themes explored in this raw and unflinching Canadian work, set in Toronto, Ontario. (Show Facebook Event)
