The Hydrofoil Mystery
Our hit production of this exciting new Cape Breton play and 5x Robert Merritt Award nominee is BACK in 2023!
It’s the summer of 1917. A teenage boy, Billy, is sent to work for the great inventor Alexander Graham Bell in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Billy’s gotten into some bad habits and has other interests than working hard for the summer. Plus, the secret project in the boathouse seems much more interesting. Mystery’s afoot, spies are lurking, and history is about to be made with Bell’s latest invention, the hydrofoil. Part coming of age, part high-spirited adventure story, and fun for the whole family, this new play brings to light a little-known chapter of Canadian history.
