Canada Boys

Back again by popular demand and with its original cast Rob John’s much-loved play sets off on its third regional tour. Set 1912, The Canada Boys is based on the true story of a group of workers at J & J Colman. The famous mustard company, concerned by rising unemployment in Norwich, offered some of its employees the opportunity of a new life on the other side of the Atlantic. ‘The Canada Boys’ is the story of two brothers who’d never ventured futher west than Wymonham but who dared to imagine a new life for themselves in ‘The British Dominion of Canada.’

This funny, sad and thought-provoking play which resonates with Norfolk voices and Norwich locations examines the relationship between a progressive company and its workers before the First World War. The Canada Boys is a play about ambition, love, duty, family and mustard
