by Fabrizio Filippo
directed by Richard Rose
April 20, 2016 – May 29, 2016
Following the death of a billionaire tech visionary, the most important people in his life are summoned to an airport hotel for the reading of his will. They know their lives are about to change, but what transpires is nothing short of a paradigm shift in the very future of technology and human nature. A world premiere from celebrated Canadian screenwriter, actor, and playwright Fabrizio Filippo.
★★★★ out of 4 “The twists and turns of Filippo’s plot are very well-crafted – each revelation, perhaps especially the one you can see coming, surprised me in one way or another; It all comes together brilliantly; you won’t find a more original production on in Toronto right now.” – The Globe and Mail
★★★ out of 4 “Filippo excels as both playwright and performer in ambitious production; The Summoned shows Tarragon isn’t afraid to keep taking risks. As Steve Jobs once said, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” – Toronto Star
NNNN “Thrilling; The Summoned downloads for its viewers a tantalizing mystery, a bit of futuristic sci-fi, a look at personal-computer history and some striking characters.” – NOW Magazine
The Summoned is approx. 85 minutes in length with no intermission.
Please note, this production contains explicit language and sexual content.
