Eastern Front Theatre is on the road again

The Dartmouth-based theatre company is back on the road again this summer with bus trips to Parrsboro and Ross Creek to take in productions by Ship's Company Theatre and Two Planks and a Passion Theatre.

Following its sold-out field trip to Parrsboro last year, Dartmouth-based Eastern Front Theatre (EFT) is back on the road again this summer with bus trips to Parrsboro and Ross Creek to take in productions by Ship’s Company Theatre and Two Planks and a Passion Theatre.

The first field trip of the season leaves Dartmouth Landing on July 6 for a matinee performance of the Ship’s Company Theatre production of Katerina Bakolias’s ‘Til Death Do Us Part. Set in a small-town hotel, the play follows Kira and Ryan as they navigate the chaotic aftermath of discovering a dead stranger in their room just days before their wedding.

The next trip on July 28 will take audiences to the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts for the Two Planks and a Passion Theatre matinee production of Catherine Banks’s The Mountain and the Valley. Adapted from the novel by Ernest Buckler, The Mountain and the Valley explores the life of David Canaan in the Annapolis Valley and examines how community makes a person who they are.

Then, on August 24, the Eastern Front Theatre bus returns to Parrsboro for the Ship’s Company Theatre matinee production of Melissa Mullen’s Still Dancing, an exploration of family dynamics and aging, as Frank and Ellen confront the impact of progressive MS on their lives and relationships.

“EFT’s summer field trips not only promises an unforgettable theatre experience but also showcases the stunning landscapes and vibrant communities of rural Atlantic Canada,” say organizers in a media release.

Each trip will transport up to 56 participants to the shows via a passenger bus equipped with WiFi, air conditioning, and restroom facilities. All three trips include a scenic drive with stops at local landmarks and businesses before catching the chosen matinee performance. Following each show, attendees will be able to engage with artists during a post-show discussion hosted by EFT artistic director Kat McCormack.
