Kansas-based playwright Darren Canady, the 2007 winner of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, returns to metro Atlanta with Ontario Was Here. His drama — at Aurora Theatre, a perennial Suzi Award winner, follows social workers Penni and Nathan on the front lines of Kansas City’s Department of Children and Families. Tempers flash when the co-workers (also ex-lovers) clash over what’s best for a 9-year-old boy named Ontario. The stakes are high and, literally, life and death. Cynthia D. Barker, better known for her work onstage, directs. This show is part of Aurora’s Harvel Lab Series, done in its smaller black-box space.
