Caribou Cave

“This is a wonderful play…” “You can’t get a better compliment to storytelling than that.” -Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter


Created by Chloe Payne, Alex Dault, Andrew Young and Michelle Urbano. Originally produced in Barrie, Ontario in July 2019 as Theatre by the Bay’s summer children’s show.

It is the dawn of time. Mammoths roam the land and cave lions stalk the plains. Two cave people, Sabaz and Nimrock, must find Caribou Cave to discover what happened to the once plentiful caribou that sustained their community.

Inspired by the LaCaribou Cave-1scaux cave paintings, Caribou Cave uses shadow puppetry and physical comedy to explore how we are not so different from our prehistoric ancestors.
