WATER: The Play
Ideal for child-friendly events, school tours (curriculum-relevant material), environment-focused festivals and events
When 8 year old Olive, who has always been afraid of big waves, meets a strange looking fish while on vacation by the sea, she makes one wish: That all the water in all the world would disappear!
What follows is a fantastical, interactive tale that transports the audience from beach resorts to apple orchards, from Ethiopia to inside our own bodies!
Follow Olive as she faces her fears and meets a spiky green plant, taunting bullies, a sassy desert snake, a silly coughing tree and a grumpy old farmer, and learns all the reasons why water must not be taken for granted.
First created for a Children's Festival in Evian, France, a new, longer version of Water: The Play was recently commissioned by the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada. Water: The Play ran for several weeks in March 2011 at the ROM, to help kick-off the opening of their Water Exhibition. The show also received a full production in July 2012 at teh Palmerston Library Theatre in Toronto. We are currently touring Water to elementary schools across Ontario.
