1735, Toronto. The woods are full of wooly mammoths, there is no food, it’s cold, and no one can remember how they ended up here. But we’re all here now. Stuck together. And the Toronto Island is getting closer and soon it will swallow us whole.

Even This Old Town Was A Forest is the latest from local theatre club Birdtown and Swanville. It is a play about how we got here, about all of our colonial histories with this land and how the past continues to haunt the future.
