Situational Anarchy
For the past thirteen years Graham Isador has been in an on again/off again relationship with transgender rockstar Laura Jane Grace. The relationship is characterized by two main factors:

1. Laura Jane Grace is the lead singer, lyricist, and front woman for the punk rock band Against Me.

2. Laura Jane Grace does not know that Graham exists.

Framed as an open letter to the singer, Isador (Soulpepper Playwrights Unit, VICE) chronicles his teenage years spent in the Southern Ontario punk scene, sharing stories of Internet message boards, strip mall record stores, and concerts in basements and backrooms.

Runner-up for Outstanding Production at the 2016 Summerworks Performance Festival, Situational Anarchy is about the growing pains of adolescence and the inevitable heartbreak of teenage conviction.

CLOSING PERFORMANCE FOLLOWED WITH A SET BY "STUCK OUT HERE".

LATECOMERS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED.

What the Critics are saying:

"[Isador] talks beautifully about his difficult youth, a tale told with such detail and precision that it conjures up clear mental pictures, while at the same time inviting connections with spectators own childhood struggles."
Karen Fricker, The Toronto Star

"Grade: A. Filled with rage and vulnerability, Situational Anarchy is a stirring ode to that time when we cared about something so much its a wonder we survived the enormity of our care."
Kelly Bedard, My Entertainment World.

"Isador is a master storyteller. He held me in rapt attention throughout the entire hour...I think anybody who has ever felt like an outsider can relate."  
Wayne Leung, Mooney on Theatre

"NNNN. Critics' Pick. You don't have to know anything about punk to get a lot out of his storytelling."
Jordan Bimm, Now Magazine.
