The History of the Village of the Small Huts, 1812-15

When America declares war on Britain and her empire, a Native confederation led by the Shawnee chief Tecumseh defends its own territory by joining in the defence of Canada. After three years of bloodshed on land and lake, the Yankees have burned York, the Yorkees have burned Washington, and everyone has burned the Natives.

The play that delighted sold-out houses at The Stratford Festival hits the Young Centre, two hundred years to the month since the original drama inflamed the town of York. THE WAR OF 1812 is one chapter in Michael Hollingsworth’s epic 21-part play-cycle, The History of the Village of the Small Huts, which has been described as "the most ambitious project in Canadian Theatre ... a freestanding monument of wit with brilliant ensemble acting and cinematic pacing." - Toronto Life
