Commemorating the 250-year anniversary of the British landing in Torbay that brought a close to the Seven Years’ War, Torbay Theatre presents two plays that delve into the town’s storied past. Set during World War II, Solomon Gosse’s Birthday: A Torbay Musical weaves the tale of a championship group of rowers seeking to beat their rivals from Outer Cove in the Fisherman’s Race. Coxswain Tobin and star oarsman Coppertop struggle to return their team to its former glory, scheming for ways to beat the odds and settling on a plan that begins with the celebration of Torbay’s eldest citizen, Solomon Gosse. Throughout the performance, period tunes and traditional stories pepper the plot, keeping audiences engrossed and preventing anyone from sneaking in a tuba to provide their own soundtrack.

1762: The Taking of Torbay plunges into the dramatic events of the titular year, starting with the French invasion of Newfoundland that kicked off one of the last acts of the intercontinental Seven Years’ War. The show follows four Torbay residents as they struggle under their town’s occupation and weigh whether to risk their lives to help retake their homeland when Lt. Col. William Amherst lands with 1,000 redcoats on Torbay Beach. Performed in view of the cliffs and beaches where the drama unfolded 250 years ago, the play draws audiences in with period costumes, beautiful scenery, and the threat to go back in time and completely change the present if the past isn’t good enough for them.
