The Tilco Strike

The Tilco Strike recounts the year-long fight between 35 poorly paid women, and their male bosses at Tilco Plastics in Peterborough, Ontario, who were determined to crush the women and their union. The strike began in December 1965 over a $25 bonus and escalated into an epic battle between organized labour and strike-breaking employers. The women lost their fight, but changed labour relations in Ontario forever.

The Cavan Blazers

The Cavan Blazers is a gritty, intense play which has the audience on the edge of its seat from start to finish. This drama chronicles the religious conflict between Catholic and Protestant settlers in Cavan Township in the early to mid-nineteenth century. Violence erupts when a Protestant vigilante gang known as the Cavan Blazers tries to stop a Catholic settlement from being established.
