(★★★★ out of 4) The twists and turns of Filippo’s plot are very well-crafted – each revelation, perhaps especially the one you can see coming, surprised me in one way or another; It all comes together brilliantly; you won’t find a more original production on in Toronto right now.

Filippo excels as both playwright and performer in ambitious production; The Summoned shows Tarragon isn’t afraid to keep taking risks.
