Schoolhouse by Leanna Brodie

The time: 1938. The place: S.S. #1 Jericho School, a one-room schoolhouse in a farming area just outside the fictional village of Baker’s Creek. There, a delightful but unmanageable group of children finally meets its match—Melita Linton, an 18-year-old teacher fresh out of Normal School. But Miss Linton soon faces her own challenge in the form of Ewart, a menacing and mysterious juvenile delinquent sent to “straighten out” on a farm after doing time in Battenville Training School. The play chronicles Miss Linton’s struggle to connect with a boy cut off from everyone, including himself—and to persuade a cautious and close-knit community to open its arms to this stranger in their midst.

Full of warmth and poignant humour, Schoolhouse evokes a way of life shared by generations of rural North Americans, while exploring timeless themes of exclusion, of compassion, of damage, and of hope.

Macbeth by Fire by William Shakespeare

Macbeth, a Scottish general who has been fighting for King Duncan, is confronted by three witches who tell Macbeth that he will become king of Scotland. Macbeth is spurred by both his ambition and his wife and haunted by a prophecy he seemingly cannot escape, leading his family and his nation into a spiral of murder and tyranny.

The latest in Two Planks and a Passion Theatre’s award-winning By Fire series, Macbeth by fire is a centuries-old play that, in many ways, feels ripped from the headlines.​
