This adaptation of the popular Young Adult novel by Eric Walters will be its World Premiere. It's the summer of 1917. A teenage boy, Billy, is sent to work for the great inventor Alexander Graham Bell in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Billy’s gotten into some bad habits and has other interests than cleaning out sheep pens and working hard for the summer. And clearly whatever’s going on in the boathouse is a really big secret. Adventure’s afoot, spies are lurking, and history is about to be made with Bell’s latest invention, the hydrofoil. Fun for the whole family, this new play is a high-spirited adventure bringing to light a little-known chapter of Canadian history.
