A Brief History of the Maritimes and Everywhere Else

A World Premiere

On a winter’s night in a rural New Brunswick cabin, Terry tells a story to his child, a story of the family’s history with links to the distant past. This story confronts a truth in the present, a truth that is a mystery until the end of the play. From celebrated Fredericton playwright Ryan Griffith (Returning Fire, The Boat, Fortune of Wolves) comes a gripping and hugely moving new work that will haunt you long after you leave the theatre.

This image features a photo of actor Jon de Leon, taken during rehearsals for our 2017 production of The Boat, written by Ryan Griffith and directed by Thomas Morgan Jones. This production toured the province in March of 2017 and received a two-week run at Neptune Theatre in Halifax. Thanks to Jon for allowing us to use his likeness in our 50th season.
