You Should Have Stayed Home (aka#G20Romp) is a play about Tommy Taylor’s experience over 48 hours at the 2010 G20 weekend in Toronto. While trying to return home from his first ever protest as a law-abiding citizen at the “Free Speech Zone” , Taylor was swept up in a mass arrest, caged with 40 other people in a ten foot by twenty foot cage. An adaption of a viral Facebook note, this community-powered production incorporates local citizens to tell the story of the largest mass arrest in Canadian history.

The spectators are early, her lover is late, and the players are due any minute. Not the best time to question what she’s doing here, waiting to get naked in a room full of strangers, but with 60 minutes before the game starts, it’s all the time she has left.
