Praise for past teen productions:

Routes 2009-2010
“ packs a punch. There wasn’t a sound from the teen audience during the school performance I saw, and if a play doesn’t hold this audience’s attention, you’ll know it right away. …The play’s last five minutes, as Tom tries on different scenarios to change the cycle of abuse and bullying in his life, is riveting.”

Jon Kaplan
NOW Magazine, Toronto

"The play covered many contemporary topics for teens on many levels. The actor engaged and captivated our students, creating opportunities for conversations and questions in the follow up classes."
Mike Reece, Counselor
George McDougall High School

“The theme of bullying and trying to be invisible was really thought provoking.”
High School Student,
Hepburn School, Saskatoon

Smokescreen 2008
“We absolutely loved Smokescreen! It was well written and presented. The kids enjoyed it and our administrators were impressed. Please keep me informed of your new productions coming out, because this one was great!”
Theresa Laville
St. Basil/Jean Forest
Leadership Academy



A slam dunk hit!

Joey is 17 and obsessed with basketball, his Irish heritage and his girlfriend Christine.  But when Christine hears a rumour that Joey may have been involved in the racially motivated beating of a local convenience store owner, their relationship is put to the test and Joey must face his own prejudices. Offensive Fouls is an engaging, sometimes funny and thought provoking exploration of cross-cultural relationships, racism, violence and respect seen through the eyes of a high school couple.

Presented in collaboration with The Centre for Race and Culture.

Curriculum Ties:
General Outcome 5 of the secondary English Language Arts Program: “Respect Others and Strengthen Community” and the specific outcome of appreciating diversity.
The overarching goals of citizenship, valuing diversity and working toward social cohesion in the social studies curriculum are supported.
Several CALM outcomes, including developing self-confidence and meaningful personal relationships.

60 minutes with a 5-10 minute Q & A.
