Piece together clues and help brother and sister duo Pen and Cob unravel the mystery of Swan River! Stepping into the world of the play, audiences will journey through the landscape experiencing theatre, music, visual imagery, and interactive installations. A story about identity, adaptability, and family, Swan River celebrates the extraordinary power that we all have to love one another unconditionally. Previously presented at the Ottawa International Children’s Festival (World Premiere May 2018) and the Shenkman Arts Centre on Petrie Island (Sept 2018).
