English is about four Iranian adults in the year 2008 who meet up tri-weekly and are preparing for a “test of English as a foreign language” in their English language as a secondary language class that has one rule: English only. All four have different motivations; one has an impending green card interview, another wishes to be able to communicate with their Canadian granddaughter, another wishes to go to an Australian medical school and finally one has just always liked the language and wishes to learn it. Some cling to their mother language while others embrace the change. English | Concord Theatricals.


Play Date is a monthly play reading activity, held on the third Thursday of each month.  We read one play from around the world together. The play reading is followed by a group discussion about the play. Anyone is welcome to join and practice reading out loud, regardless of experience or level of English comprehension. With Play Date, learning English becomes fun. This is a place where you can practice speaking out loud, expand your vocabulary and meet new people. Play Date is produced by Crane Creations Theatre Company. Crane Creations is an immigrant led professional theatre company located in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. Join us for our next Play Date!
