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.

Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. The first rock musical to hit Broadway, Hair boasts a stellar score which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.

A young man is found near dead on a beach in 1863 Nova Scotia, missing both legs at the knee and unable to speak. For the rest of his life, Jerome is cared for by several families as his fame grows and wanes. From all over, people try to guess where the mystery man is from, but to this day he remains a true Canadian mystery. With original songs by Sarah Segal-Lazar, the play explores not only his life in NS, but several possible origins to the man known as Jerome.
