The Water Chronicles

By Alexandria Haber
Directed by Zach Fraser
Developed in partnership with Playwrights' Workshop Montreal

Touring in Quebec, Ontario & the Maritimes
September 2019 – April 2020


Darya is worried. Even though her settlement has strict rules about wasting water, their water supply has gotten dangerously low. Not one to sit by idly when there is a problem that needs solving, Darya sets out with her divining rod (magic water finding stick) and best friend, Nix, to find a new water source. Along the way they encounter more than they expected and discover that there’s a whole lot more to water than they ever realized.

The Water Chronicles is a playful examination of our relationship with water and the impact this has on our environment. It asks questions: Who owns water? What happens when we don’t respect water? How can we make a difference in avoiding the very real possibility of a water crisis? In an imaginative and fun way, the play explores the many ways that water impacts our lives and how small changes (and small kids!) and can make a big difference.

Fear of Missing Out

By Michaela Di Cesare
Directed by Sophie Gee
Developed in partnership with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

Touring in Quebec, Ontario & the Maritimes
September 2019 – April 2020


Olive wants to research a string of assaults at bus stops in her neighbourhood for the school paper. Unfortunately, she’s grounded and spends all her free time working at her parents’ deli under their watchful supervision. Olive’s best friend T-Star (née Tanya) is growing impatient with this arrangement and starts to withdraw from the friendship. Vincent, an aspiring forensic scientist on the autism spectrum, befriends Olive and promises to help her crack the case.

Fear of Missing Out is a beautiful coming-of-age play that looks at the tough choices facing teens today; a contemporary tale that honestly navigates conversations and realities of consent, cultural identity, and independence.

Please note that the themes / events addressed in this play are not represented explicitly and are referred to with respect to the subject matter and to whom anyone may relate.

The In-Between

By Marcus Youssef
Directed by Mike Payette
Developed in partnership with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal and with the support of the 2017 Banff Centre Playwrights Lab

Touring in the United States and Canada in January 2021

Lily feels trapped. When a conflict between her best friend Brit and the guy she likes Karim breaks out after other students share racist, anti-Muslim memes, a misunderstanding leads to a school lockdown. Lily finds herself right in the middle, forced to make hard choices about which friend’s truth she’s going to believe.

Illustrating the real-life challenges of immigration, income inequality, and fears of violence in our schools, The In-Between is a realistic, relatable exploration of the complex social circumstances students must navigate in today’s world.

Written by award-winning playwright Marcus Youssef - writer of the international Geordie hit Jabber, seen by tens of thousands of young people across North America and Europe - Youssef tackles hard questions with humour, sensitivity and a deft ear for how young people negotiate the adult-size problems they encounter as they enter their later teens.

“So we are speaking up for those who don’t have anyone listening to them, for those who can’t talk about it just yet, and for those who will never speak again.” – Emma Gonzales, Marjory Stoneman Survivor, Activist, 17 years-old
