West Moon*

*Note: This is a staged reading by the cast.

By Al Pittman, published by Breakwater Books
Directed by Charlie Tomlinson

This story captures all the power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience of those who populated the outports of yesteryear, back before they were “drove out” from their homes by the fishing grounds to so called growth centres. On All Souls night they all come alive again and relive the time in the golden age of the Newfoundland outport. You will get to know them all and the community they built. Al Pittman was a brilliant playwright and poet and you hear it in the power of his words. We are delighted to respond to your many requests to bring West Moon back to the Trinity stage.
