In 1696, the Seven Years War rages between England and France as each seeks to conquer the New World in North America.The cod filled shores of Newfoundland are a powder keg as both nations jostle for control of the strategically and economically vital island.
The match is struck with the arrival in Plaisance of famed French war hero, Captain Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville, who brings with him an extraordinary plan to vanquish the English in the New World. More than just the English stands in his way, however, as Plaisance is war weary and the Governor seems more concerned about finances than fighting.
Even worse is the island itself, with a landscape as rugged and deadly as any foe. As the situation grows more and more dire, d’Iberville must risk it all to battle the English, for the fate of Plaisance will be decided by The Battle for Terre-Neuve.
With a runtime of about 30 minutes, audiences will learn about the dramatic history of Plaisance, the people who struggled to survive great hardship and how legends take rise from the truth of battle.
Performed Wednesdays at 2pm outside the theatre office on 68 Orcan Drive, weather permitting.
