You Should Have Stayed Home

You Should Have Stayed Home (aka#G20Romp) is a play about Tommy Taylor’s experience over 48 hours at the2010 G20 weekend in Toronto. While trying to return home from his first ever protest as a law-abiding citizen at the “Free Speech Zone” at Queen’s Park, Taylor was swept up in a mass arrest, caged with 40 other people in a ten foot by twenty foot cage and denied drinking water until he passed out from dehydration.

The play is an adaptation of Tommy’s Facebook note,  How I Got Arrested and Abused at G20 in Toronto. The note went viral and has been translated into seven languages and appeared in twenty-one countries – a detailed, frightening and often funny account of the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Tommy’s story has been covered by national and international media, including a Gemini-nominated CBC documentary named after the production.

ONSTAGE from October 16 to 26, 2013 in the Aki Studio Theatre at Daniel’s Spectrum

Showtimes:

Tuesday to Friday: 8:00 p.m

Saturday: 2:00pm & 8:00pm
