It’s the summer of 1917 and a teenage boy is sent to work for the great inventor Alexander Graham Bell in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Billy McCracken’s gotten into some bad habits and has other interests than slinging sheep manure and working hard for the summer. And clearly whatever’s going on in the boathouse is a really big secret. Adventure’s afoot, spies are lurking and history is about to be made with Bell’s latest invention, the hydrofoil. Fun for the whole family, this new play is a high-spirited adventure bringing to light a little known chapter of Canadian history.
