Theatre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The Tarragon was founded in 1970 by Bill Glassco, a former University of Toronto professor. Through its early years, it quickly established itself as a leading Canadian source for new plays and new artists. Apart from new Canadian material, the Tarragon complements its repertoire with "bold contemporary work from outside the country, and radical versions of the classics (Chekhov, Strindberg, Ibsen, Goethe) re-imagined for its intimate space."
The theatre now hosts two performance areas, the main space and the smaller "extra space".
The Tarragon is also one of the main venues for Toronto's two summer theatre festivals, the Fringe Festival and the Summerworks Festival.
