Fifteenth-century painter Sandro Botticelli is devoted to beauty, sensuality, and pleasure; a devotion tested by the arrival of a conservative priest in Florence, leading a populist revolution. When Botticelli’s full-throttle, decadent ways catch up to him, will the famed artist sacrifice his work...or the life of his young apprentice Leonardo Da Vinci? From award-winning Canadian playwright, Jordan Tannahill, comes a searing and ambitious story that sets our present political moment ablaze.

About the playwright: Jordan Tannahill (b.1988) is one of Canada’s most distinguished theatre artists. His plays have been translated into multiple languages and widely honored in Canada and abroad. He is the youngest two-time winner of a Governor General's Literary Award, Canada's highest literary honour. His books include Theatre of the Unimpressed and the novel, Liminal. Jordan's work in film has been presented in festivals and galleries the world over. His virtual reality performance, Draw Me Close, produced by the National Theatre (UK) and the National Film Board of Canada, was presented at both the Tribeca Film Festival and Venice Biennale in 2017, and more recently ran at London's Young Vic Theatre in January 2019. In 2018, Jordan wrote the text for dancer Akram Khan's celebrated final solo Xenos, currently touring internationally. From 2012 - 2016, in collaboration with William Ellis, Jordan ran the alternative art space Videofag out of their home in Toronto’s Kensington Market neighbourhood. Over the four years of its operation, Videofag became an influential hub for queer and avant-garde work in Canada. Jordan currently lives between Budapest and London. 

“I'm thrilled Botticelli in the Fire is going to be part of such an exciting season at MTC, and hope it ignites hearts and loins in the Bay Area.”  —Jordan Tannahill
