The Drake X Hogtown

Posted by Megan Hilario, 1 month ago

The Hogtown Experience is the brainchild of Sam Rosenthal (Producer/Director) and Drew Carnwath (Producer/Writer) longtime friends that share the love of storytelling and theatre. Together they created the concept of this immersive theatrical time piece that blends contemporary spaces with old fashioned stories and set design. The Hogtown Experience has previously performed in Campbell House Museum, The Broadview Hotel, and now we are exited to trasnform the Drake Commissary into a 1920's world. We spoke to Sam and Drew about the history behind their theatre company known as The Hogtown Collective, what to expect from the show, and the ideas and inspirations behind the play itself.

I decided that I wanted to learn more about the building and more specifically its ties to food production in Toronto (who doesn’t love pickles?) so I headed over to the City of Toronto Archives to get started.
