WATER WEIGHT (Elementary School Tour)

Written by Jesse Stong
Directed by Mike Payette

Script developed with Playwrights' Workshop Montréal

On a hot summer day, when they wanna stay cool...all the kids go on down to the town’s swimming pool! A young girl with a chubby little puppy, and a young boy with a feisty feline friend, throw insults at a pool and spin out into a whirlwind of adventure. The magical swimming pool comes to life to make both of their deepest wishes rise to the surface; as the boy starts to grow and the girl starts to shrink, everything begins to flow out of control! A show for children that plays with size while looking at issues with self-image; reminding us all that every water drop is a little bit different.

INSTANT (High School/CEGEP Tour)

Written by Erin Shields
Directed by Dean Patrick Fleming

How far would you go to be seen?

Meredith wants to be a pop star. Jay wants to be a hockey star. Rosie just wants to help her father. Searching for fame in a world of instant communication drives all of them to make splitsecond choices that have lasting ramifications. Written by Governor-General Award winner Erin Shields, Instant is a lightening-speed, multinarrative story about three teenagers who are trying to be heard in a world where it’s harder to reach the top if you don’t recognize who you really are.

Cross-curriculum connections: Social media literacy, digital identity, online bullying, MS awareness and domestic abuse.
