Soon you can watch a play about Target Canada's demise (from inside an old Target store)

Target may not have lasted long in Toronto - and Canada for that matter - but it definitely left its mark on this city and our retail landscape.

So much so, as Maclean's reports, that you'll soon be able to watch a play about the company from inside an old Target store.

Community Target, by Oshawa's Robert Motum, won't open for previeww until August. The show is part of Toronto's Outside the March Theatre Company's Forward March program.

Outside the March focuses on producing site-specific, immersive productions, and according to Maclean's, Community Target will fit that bill as it examines the rise and fall of the retail giant in Canada.
