Each year, the 4th Line Theatre Company presents plays that are idyllic, rural and quintessentially Canadian; small town stories or broad national sagas that touch a nerve in all of us. The Peterborough Museum and Archives acts as a year-round ticket outlet. You can purchase tickets by cash or cheque at the Museum. 

Now that the summer 2019 season has come to an end, check back for more information about the availability of 4th Line Theatre gift certificates.

August 6 to 31, 2019

Preview nights: August 6 and 7, 2019

Written by Ian MacLachlan and Robert Winslow

Directed by Kim Blackwell

Carmel is the third in the Barnardo children series of plays (Doctor Barnardo's Children, 2005 and 2014; Wounded Soldiers, 2014) and features characters you already met and fell in love with. This play is full of music, dancing, and farm families trying to get on with the job of living their lives. Set on the Carmel Line in Cavan Township in 1937, the play follows the struggles of a family to hold on to their farm during the Great Depression. This bittersweet work also explores Peterborough labour history and features original music inspired by country and western, and folk music traditions of the 1930s. Carmel is dedicated to Harold and Lillian Lunn.
