A Community Target
A Community Target by Robert Motum
A live verbatim documentary play about the enthusiastic launch and ultimate failure of Target Canada department stores performed by The Passionate Players in and around Toronto's historic Regent Theatre.

A Community Target is a site-specific, immersive theatre production. Audiences will be guided throughout Regent Theatre by actors. As such, it is important to wear footwear you're comfortable walking in. There is an accessible track; please contact if you require it or physical assistance.

The Passionate Players is a benefit endeavour from Outside the March and Convergence Theatre. All proceeds from the production go to supporting the not-for-profit creative endeavours of both companies.

On January 15, 2015, less than two years after they opened their first Canadian stores, Target announced that they would be discontinuing operations in Canada. At the time, the story was analysed by every business critic and financial pundit on television; they spoke about numbers, shareholders, and stocks. What was strikingly absent from this conversation, however, were the voices of the 17,600 Canadians who had just lost their jobs and had their lives upheaved. A Community Target aims to shares these stories in an intimate, personal and communal way.

The production will be performed in and around one of Torontos oldest cinemas and one-time vaudeville house  The Regent Theatre, on Mount Pleasant Avenue just north of Davisville. The production will be staged in a promenade style, giving audience members the opportunity to explore every inch of this historic building  true to the immersive identities of the two producing companies: Outside the March (Dr. Silver, Jerusalem, TomorrowLove) and Convergence Theatre (The Unending, The Gladstone Variations, Yichud).

A Community Target will feature of a cast of thirty community members - non-professional performers who are participants in the The Passionate Players Program. Now in its fifth year, The Passionate Players is a benefit endeavour from Outside the March and Convergence Theatre. The program offers community members interested in gaining hands-on experience in theatre the opportunity to train and participate in a full-fledged production. All proceeds from the production will go to supporting the not-for-profit creative endeavours of both companies.
