They Club Seals, Don't They? is a well-loved piece from the Newfoundland repetoire. Collectively written by the Mummers Troupe and successfully – and controversially – toured in 1978, it is an uproarious, episodic comedy which deals with issues that are still at the fore-front of Newfoundland society today. World's End Theatre is privileged to be producing this work on Fogo Island, where the Co-op continues to deal in seal meat and fur.

Suzy and Norman aren't friends. Not even close. But when they find themselves face to face with a fairy, they are going to have to work together to make it out of the woods.
Commissioned for the 2011 World's End Theatre Festival and written by two of the most promising emerging playwrights in the province, Kept explores some of the wealth of folklore native to Fogo Island. Written and produced with young families in mind, this show is a fun and colourful adventure full of music and play.
