Touring in 2019-2020

ELEMENTARY SHOW

World Premiere

Touring throughout Quebec, Ontario, and the Maritimes

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.

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.
