Synopsis

The place is Toronto’s Don Valley in the year 1880.  Join George Taylor and a traveling Gilbert & Sullivan theatrical troupe The Vagabonds, in a celebration of the 25th anniversary of his paper mill.  Meanwhile, Jeremiah, the leader of a local small-potatoes bandit group called The Rift Rafters has just discovered a long-hidden secret about his own identity and summons the audience in helping him break into Taylor’s house to obtain the evidence he needs.  How does it all turn out? Join us during one of our free September performances as the audience follows several characters and story lines all over the historic Todmorden Mills . . . perhaps some people will even find themselves summoned to be players on the stage!

Bandits in the Valley is a new multimedia opera work based on the local history of the Don Valley as a haven for smugglers and bandits in the late 1800’s. The work will be presented as a free community art activation, near the historic events depicted, utilizing locations inside the historic buildings on the site.
