The town is so small it only has one Tim Hortons. But community-minded Marlene is determined to “diversify” the curling club. She enlists four newcomers to learn the game nut when she slips on the ice and breaks her hip, the rink’s ice maker and former champion curler Stuart MacPhail is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, Stuart has some strong opinions about immigrants…


What follows is the hilarious and inspiring story of a group of unlikely athletes who face off against local prejudice and become a true team. Each character has their own story to tell about life off the life—all while they prepare to compete in the local bonspiel: the highly coveted Highlander Cup. Both laugh-out-loud funny and quietly moving, The New Canadian Curling Club is a brand new comedy about immigration, community, and national identity—with a heart as big as Canada itself!
