The Originals

Documentary in creation by Niall McNeil & Paul Power

Niall McNeil has a long association with Caravan Farm Theatre – he spent many of his childhood summers here, watching rehearsals while his parents worked on the shows; and, in his teens and twenties probably logged more volunteer ushering hours than anyone in Caravan’s history. Now a celebrated playwright based in Vancouver, his work has been presented in at the Luminato Festival in Toronto, and on stage in Vancouver, Ottawa, and Hong Kong. He has two upcoming projects with Caravan Farm Theatre: His documentary “The Originals” will premiere in August 2021, and he is working ideas for a new play for 2023. His blog is part diary, part memoir, and is very much a history of his relationship with Caravan Farm Theatre.
