Winner of the 2014 Governor General's Literary Award

Based on a true story, Get Yourself Home Skyler James follows the harrowing journey of a young lesbian who defects from the army when she is outed by fellow soldiers. The award-winning rihannaboi95 centres around a Toronto teen whose world comes crashing in when YouTube videos of him dancing to songs by his favourite pop heroine go viral. Finally, Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes chronicles the last hour of Peter Fechter’s life, a teenager in East Berlin shot while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall in 1962 with his companion. Together these solo plays explore the lives of three queer youth and their resilience in the face of violence and intolerance.


“Jordan Tannahill’s Age of Minority is rife with vivid and fragile characters, and includes trailblazing storytelling. His unlikely heroes demonstrate the power of youth and love in a hostile world. He is an exciting and courageous voice of our time who gives us a collection full of imaginative and playful imagery.”
