    The city’s last affordable house is for sale. Heads roll and shrimp tails fly when a frantic, 12-hour bidding war erupts during what was supposed to be a routine open house. Agents turn on buyers, buyers turn on agents, and everything spirals into an uproarious dark comedy of desperation and anxiety.

    This season’s largest cast brings everyday homebuyers to life as they grapple with extraordinary circumstances, skyrocketing housing costs, gentrification, and sabotage.

    The Bidding War features a knock-out ensemble cast including Aurora Browne, Sergio Di Zio, Izad Etemadi, Peter Fernandes, Veronica Hortiguela, George Krissa, Amy Matysio, Fiona Reid, Gregory Prest, and Steven Sutcliffe.

    Michael Ross Albert (The Huns, Tough Jews) is a Toronto-based playwright, screenwriter, independent producer, educator, dramaturge, and Dora-Award winning theatre
    artist Paolo Santalucia (Prodigal, Casimir and Caroline, Orphans for the Czar) is the Associate Artistic Director at Crow’s Theatre.

    “Michael Ross Albert is one of Toronto’s most exciting playwrights.”
    Toronto Star
