A Tale on Two Wheels
Developed in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, A Tale on Two Wheels is a show delivered by tandem bike to parks around Nova Scotia for our very youngest audiences between the ages of 18 months and 4 years.
Two people tasked with delivering the daytime are thrown into chaos when asked to deliver the night. The show explores what it means to support a friend and dealing with fear all with authenticity, whimsy, and song. First created in 2020, A Tale on Two Wheels safely reached over 200 young audience members in Summer 2020. During the Summer 2021, Gale Force Theatre will be touring an updated version of the show around Nova Scotia.

I loved it so much! It made me feel really good.Buttercup Shannon, young audience member
Crypthand is a play inspired by the 19th century diaries of Anne Lister which documented her life and relationships with women. The play explores Lister’s relationship to her first girlfriend, Eliza in her early teen years. A cast of three takes on an ensemble feel playing the nuns, schoolgirls, local politicians, and characters from greek mythology. What does it mean to live a life in code?
Developed at the 2019 PARC Retreat, Crypthand won the Best Original Script award at the 2019 Halifax Fringe Festival. For the past two years Crypthand has been a part of Eastern Front Theatre’s Stages Festival. In 2020 Gale Force Theatre created a teaser trailer and in 2021 they performed a virtual reading of the script. Check out our teaser trailer below!
