The Stranger by Ken Schwartz

Adapted from a novel by R.L. Stevenson

July 8th- September 4th: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday at 9:30pm.

In the sleepy village of Apple Tree Landing, NS, the visit of a single stranger disrupts the lives of its citizens and forces two friends, a lawyer and a reporter, into an unlikely alliance to uncover the truth behind the stranger’s identity and true purpose. When a well-known citizen is found murdered, they must race against the clock to piece together a story so incredible and terrifying they can scarcely believe it themselves. At once a meditation on the true nature of friendship and a late-Edwardian fireside murder mystery, The Stranger is a powerful examination of a small town experiencing the shock of the unknown.

In the fall of 1918, the small town of Unity, Saskatchewan is celebrating the return of some soldiers and the loss of still others. But while World War One is coming to an end, a new challenge, a mysterious illness, brings the realities of war closer to home than anyone imagined. As the small farming community becomes increasingly isolated, community members struggle to understand their new world and how their lives will be changed forever. 

“A work of powerful and moving familiarity…It’s also painfully funny” -The Globe and Mail.
