Co-produced by Porte Parole and Crow's Theatre with support from La Coop fédérée
Annabel, a Montreal documentary theatre artist, leads her own family on a cross-country journey investigating the forces that are shaping the future of our natural resources. Encountering leading freshwater scientists, government officials, activists, and business leaders along the way, The Watershed captures an increasingly polarized Canada in a moment of political reflection.

NNNNN “Thrilling on every level, and as informative as it is inspiring, the play expands the idea of what theatre can do.” – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
“A sprawling, ambitious, revealing, challenging production that also happens to be blissfully hilarious and entertaining as well.” — Toronto Star
