We Come To You

Geordie's popular 2Play School Tour runs from September to April performing in schools all over Montreal as well as traveling across Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes. From the Îles de la Madeleine to Chibougamau, Geordie brings professional live theatre into schools, community centres and libraries, traveling an average of 28,000 km each season and performing over 200 times to more than 40,000 students. To encourage dialogue on the performance and its subject matter, every performance is followed by a Q & A session, and comes with a FREE Teacher’s Study Guide which is available for download (Teacher's Study Guide).

Touring in 2017-2018

Elementary School Tour

By Chelsea Woolley
Directed by Arianna Bardesono

Touring in Quebec, Ontario & the Maritimes
September 2017 – April 2018

Aya, the lady adventurer - “not a princess because princesses are stuck up” - just wants to go home. She is a refugee and that means she is not from here. She’s tired of Canada, and wants to go back to her great and magical valley, far, far away. The only problem is, her dad won’t answer her phone calls, she’s broke, and the lonely boy she’s found to be her side-kick, doesn’t want to help. A beautiful and timely show for young people about fear, bullies, war, and the mountain we must climb together, as one, to find peace.

Cross-curriculum connections:
Refugee Experience, Perseverance, Fear, Hope, Friendship.

Friendship, Gender Politics, Race and Class Politics, Shadeism, Coming of Age.
