In This Light by Catherine Banks
Adapted from Enemy of the People by Ibsen
Dr. Thomasina Burke is a well-respected medical doctor in a rural village in the Annapolis Valley in 1931. Just as her home is poised to reap the benefits of an important new business- a health spa that will bring people from far and wide- Dr. Burke makes a discovery that will challenge her whole community to choose sides in a battle over the very nature of truth, and the power of one person to be heard.

Two Planks and a Passion is an award-winning professional theatre company in residence at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, offering exquisite outdoor productions in a spectacular setting.

Our work is the result of a unique marriage between nature and the artistic imagination. Working within the limits that Mother Nature imposes, our productions are distinguished by the ingenuity and dedication of performers, designers, writers and directors to create works full of wonder. An engaging story, relevant to our audience, told inventively and with complete commitment is our ultimate goal with every production.

The company’s performance venue is 178 acres of varied farmland that surrounds the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts. Forest, fields and ponds offer an endless variety of creative spaces that, in large part, influence the selection of works for development and production.

Within all of our work, whether a completely new Canadian musical, a free adaptation of Aristophanes or a site-specific production of Shakespeare or Thornton Wilder, lies the potential for us to connect- from our small village in rural Nova Scotia- with people from different places and times. By exploring these classic, sometimes ancient stories in this unique place, we attempt to answer a simple and eternal question: what makes us human?
