Single Thread Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere production of Alex Daults historical thriller Firebrand, playing at Mackenzie House, 82 Bond Street, Toronto, Ontario, from February 6th to 22nd, 2014.

Firebrand is an intensely intimate look into the final years of Torontos first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. In the twilight of life, Mackenzie returns to Toronto from an eleven-year exile with his family in tow. Overcome with debt, he seeks recompense and redemption from the newly formed government for a lifetime of work. Yet, not everyone is prepared to forgive Mackenzie for his role in the Rebellion of 1837- including his wife and children. This unique site-specific production allows the audience to sit inches away from the actors and eavesdrop on the tangled skein of secrets of the Mackenzie family.

Firebrand is performed by Greg Campbell, Burgandy Code, Michael Rawley, Caroline Toal, Clara Pasieka and Jakob Ehman. The production team includes Jonathan Langley director, Mikael Kangas lights, Claire Hill costumes, Julia Matias costume assistant, Jenn Hewitt stage manager and featuring original artwork from Herb Jung, Peter Holton and Frank Fiorentino.
