The Night's Mare

Check out the latest from The Caravan Farm Theatre!

July 21 to August 23 2015 - 7:30pm
No shows on Mondays

Little Florence, gentle horse lover and babysitter extraordinaire, can soothe any fussy baby, quiet any tantrum and scare away monsters from under the bed. But her skills are tested when a Hollywood "supercouple" comes to town to research their next movie about a fabled magical mare rumored to live in the woods outside of town. They have an unruly daughter who is driving them mad. Hoping to impress the celebrities, Florence's mother volunteers her daughter's services to look after the toddler. When the child escapes under Florence's watch, she must follow her into the woods at night and bring her back to her parents before morning. As the hunt for the mythical mare escalates, Florence hunts the couple's unbridled daughter on an all-night quest.

Recovery Day

On September 26, 2015 Canadians in recovery from addiction will join with friends and family to combat negative perceptions towards individuals in recovery. Our mission is to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving life for individuals, families, and communities. We believe that recovery saves lives. We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where individuals will not experience shame when seeking help. We are passionate about sharing the faces, voices and stories of recovery in hopes of inspiring and inviting others to join us on the rewarding, yet diverse, path to wholeness. Together, we will demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

By participating in the Recovery Day Okanagan event it is an opportunity to join others in publically acknowledging that you support those in recovery and the recovery movement. At the event there will be a multitude of vendors with recovery information including local support groups.
