Dib and Dob and the Journey Home

Derek Scott and David S. Craig in Roseneath Theatre’s production of Dib and Dob and the Journey Home

(written with Robert Morgan)

“…a delightful piece of theatre for young audiences that reminds us all just how exciting the theatrical voyage can be for any age.”
– John Coulbourn,  Toronto Sun

One act play for families.

Dib and Dob and the Journey Home is a one act comedy for young audiences which explores ‘sibling revelry’ in an imaginary world of purple twizzlers, giant caterpillars, flowers that go ‘poof’ and the wonderfully scary, Root Growler.

Dib and Dob are two brothers.  They are on a journey to find home and they have been on that journey their whole lives.    Always together, they have developed a form of ‘twin speak’ that is both comic and touching.

Characters: 2M.

Winner of the 1999 Chalmers New Play Award, and winner of the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Production.
