World Premiere

Blow Wind
High Water

A raging flood threatens three generations of Calgarians as they struggle to come together to keep from going under. With a surging river and an aged patriarch trapped in time, the family attempts to create a legacy worth inheriting by future generations. A profound, playful, and magical new Canadian play.

What better way to celebrate our 50th season than to debut a new play, with Calgary at its centre, by one of Canada’s greatest playwrights – Sharon Pollock. This play was commissioned and developed through FUSE: The Enbridge New Play Development Program at Theatre Calgary. A thrilling start to our season.
- Shari Wattling, past Interim Artistic Director
