How do we fit in?
Where do we find love?

Join the curious citizens of Smalltown as they seek to answer these very questions. Written by and starring eight Surrey youth, Welcome to Smalltown is a heartwarming (and heart-wrenching) all-ages dramatic comedy that offers the audience a rare glimpse into the everyday exploits of their peculiar rural community.
