Toronto: Young People’s Theatre presents “Instant” by Erin Shields November 28-December 15

Young People’s Theatre (YPT) is pleased to welcome back Montreal’s Geordie Productions and their acclaimed production of Instant by Governor General Award-winning playwright Erin Shields. A timely teen piece on the need to be noticed and the impact of social media, Instant will be presented in The Studio from November 28 to December 15.

Meredith is a singer-songwriter intent on stardom. Jay is her friend, a gifted hockey player who aspires to play in the NHL. Rosie is raising money to pay for her father’s expensive medical needs. All three are competing to get noticed…and then the lightning-fast world of social media triggers an avalanche of controversy. How far will they go to achieve their ambition?

Instant is directed by Geordie’s former Artistic Director Dean Patrick Fleming, recipient of the 2013 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contribution to the Arts, and features Leah Fong, Michelle Rambharose and Dakota Jamal Wellman.
