The Picnic Plays series is made accessible to all families through its Pay-What-You-Can admission, and it brings the community together as people gather on blankets outdoors to enjoy an all-ages play full of imagination, puppets, and sunshine!

We are located in Awokun, Mi’kma’ki, also known as Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, which is on land that is in the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq people. The Mi’kmaq people have been here on this land for over 11,000 years. In 1752 a treaty was signed between the British and the Mi’kmaq that detailed the sharing of the land and its resources. We know that the rights within this treaty have not been upheld. As descendants of settlers who colonized this land, it is important that we think about our relationship to the land, to Mi’kmaq culture and its people, and how we can make a future where we actually share the land and the resources it gives us. We need to think about how we can move forward to enact a future of respect and generosity. And we need to act immediately, with kindness and compassion. A major step in this process is educating ourselves. Ship’s Company Theatre is on a continuing journey of awareness and education. We encourage you to join us.
