THE CANADA BOYS
An Audio Production of the play by Rob John

In 2012 and again in 2014 award-nominated fEAST Theatre scored a major hit with their show The Canada Boys. Sell out performances across the region and in London helped to put this new company on the map and fEAST was praised for ‘bringing original and vibrant theatre to our region’ (Eastern Daily Press).

The Canada Boys is based on the true story of a group of workers at J & J Colman. In 1912 the famous mustard company, concerned by rising unemployment in Norwich, offered some of its employees the opportunity of a new life as farm workers on the other side of the Atlantic. ‘The Canada Boys is the story of two brothers who’d never ventured further west than Wymondham but who dared to imagine a new life for themselves in ‘The British Dominion of Canada.’

Set in the shadow of The First World War this funny, sad and thought-provoking play resonates with Norfolk voices and locations and examines life in a world where ‘things int fixed solid no more’ and where change is coming…even to Norfolk. The Canada Boys is a play about ambition, love, duty, family and mustard.
