Isabelle, a young tenure-track professor, tests the limits of free speech by encouraging her students to contribute to an unmoderated discussion group. When an anonymous student posts offensive comments and videos, Isabelle must decide whether to intervene or to let the social experiment play out. Soon, the posts turn abusive and threatening, leading Isabelle and her unknown tormentor to engage in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse that not only has Isabelle questioning her beliefs, but fearing for her life.
Directed by Esther Jun and featuring Bilal Baig, Sascha Cole, Audrey Dwyer, Asha James, Kyle Orzech, Anthony Perpuse and Gord Rand
Running time: 80 minutes, followed by discussion with the audience
Theory will receive its premiere production in Fall 2018 as part of Tarragon's 2018/19 Season.
