Grow

Book by Matt Murray
Music by Colleen Dauncey
Lyrics by Akiva Romer-Segal

A High-ly Entertaining New Musical

Before they must commit to the Amish faith forever, nineteen-year-old twins Hannah and Ruth leave the comfort of their sheltered community to explore the outside world for the first time. After finding themselves stranded in one of Toronto’s roughest neighbourhoods, all their plans go up in smoke and they end up working at an illegal marijuana grow-op. Grow is an outrageously fun, big-hearted musical, that explores sisterhood, community, and the legalization of a once-forbidden weed.

"Big laughs, lots of heart."
