TELL TALE HARBOUR
A World Premiere Musical Comedy
Deep in the heart of Atlantic Canada sits a small harbour slowly losing hope. The once bountiful fishing village is struggling to survive, and half the population is relocating to the mainland for better opportunities. The community is looking for a miracle when an opportunity arises to bring a state-of-the-art frozen french fry facility to town. There’s just one major obstacle; to secure the factory, the harbour must have a full-time resident doctor. Realizing this might be their last chance to save their beloved community, the townspeople come together to charm an interim doctor into moving there permanently.
Based on the screenplay The Grand Seduction by Ken Scott, this new musical comedy celebrates the people, the trials, and the triumphs of living in a small community in Atlantic Canada. Co-written by, and starring music icon Alan Doyle, the story of Tell Tale Harbour is as relatable as it is ridiculous, as hilarious as it is heartfelt, and full of East Coast pride.
