Something has already started.
A lone right whale sings a love song in an empty ocean, seeking its mate.
Greta Thundberg sails into New York City, as punk as they come.
The smoke from the forest fires rolls into town and Joan of Arc sets off the fire alarm at school.
12 teenagers go to a sleepover party committed to banishing shame and saving the world.

In this beautiful and enthusiastically theatrical piece by the radical young theatre artists of Western Canada High School, you will see the undeniable root of hope seed a forest at a slumber party. Whale lovers, punks, and reluctant saints are the anatomy of the revolution. Sounds intense, we know. But we are serious. We mean it. Every. Single. Word.
