Synopsis:

Little Will Harrison’s dying wish is to help homeless people in Alberta by organizing a food drive. With the help of their neighbours and close friends the Welsh family, the Harrisons work hard to help Will realize his final wish.  As the families gather produce donated from the town of Sunrise, they dig up more than just potatoes: a surprise engagement and a secret affair promise to bring the two families closer together and rip them apart, forever.

Play Development: Shelter, Andrew’s first play, was an official selection of the 2007 Scripts at Work (SAW) workshop in Red Deer, Alberta. The play was workshopped with acclaimed Canadian playwright, actor, and director Mieko Ouchi and directed by Vanessa Porteous for a public reading at the Margaret Parson’s Theatre in April of the same year.  The play was also read, under the direction of Tanya Ryga, at the 2008 Nextfest Festival of the Arts in Edmonton.
