Multi Dora Award-nominated Theatre Smash is thrilled to present the world premiere of Cape Breton-born playwright Graeme Gillis' A BOY CALLED NEWFOUNDLAND, a dark and quirky family comedy directed by Ashlie Corcoran, running March 26 to April 11 at Tarragon Theatre's Extra Space.

Patrick Kwok-Choon plays Newfoundland "Flounder" Willow, an awkward 15-year-old cadet. A loner who is scared of being alone, his life revolves around his family, his synthesizer, his French-camp love Evelyn, and his parents' family business - The Romantic Times, a self-published newspaper. When his mother returns home from her second honeymoon without her husband, Newfoundland and his sisters struggle to recreate the family and home they once knew.

The productions are outright superb" National Post

Award-winning company THEATREFRONT continues their ghost story serial, THE MILL, with Part Three: THE WOODS, written by Tara Beagan and directed by Sarah Stanley.

A Canadian horror story, THE WOODS takes place in 1640, two centuries before Part One and Part Two. The mill does not yet exist. The woods conceal a First Nations burial ground; the former site of a Wendat (Huron) settlement decimated by the imported ideals, and epidemics, of the French settlers.
