Colours in the Storm by Jim Betts
Colours in the Storm is a musical about the life—and mysterious death—of iconic Canadian painter, Tom Thomson. A play with songs, rather than a traditional musical, the show follows Thomson’s development as a painter from his arrival in Algonquin Park in 1912 to his death there in Canoe Lake in 1917. Increasingly possessed by his artistic vision, Thomson struggles to realize his potential and to come to terms with the passions in his life.
