Theatre Direct presents Animacy Theatre Collective performing an excerpt from FINDING HOME. FINDING HOME is the story of two best friends, who also happen to be CHINOOK SALMON. Beagle and Sojo have lived together in Lake Ontario for 4 years, and they do everything together – as true best friends always do… Until Beagle (the older of the two) starts to change, and gets the urge to set off on an adventure upstream, whether Sojo wants to come or not. The Humber River is tough to navigate, and the two face all kinds of challenges together: fishermen, pollution, sharp rocks, and rapids… Along the way they learn what it means to ‘reach maturity’, what it means to be a real friend, how beautiful it is to complete your life cycle, and why salmon really are the Rockstars of the Fish world!”
