York, 1813… The Americans have occupied the town. The people of York must choose to remain loyal to Great Britain or embrace the American conqueror.

Developed in residence at Canadian Stage for the Festival of Ideas and Creation, The Loyalists focuses on concepts of domesticity, loyalty and above all, the decision to remain a distinct people.

The town of York consists of fifteen ‘stations’ designed by architect Jay Pooley. A cast of fifteen actors populate the town. A team of fifteen artists, including composers, carpenters, weavers, props experts, and installation artists have collaborated to create the sound, feel and texture of the world.
