West Moon

Based on West Moon by Al Pittman, published by Breakwater Books Ltd.
Directed by Ruth Lawrence

This story captures all the power, laughter, joy and stubborn resilience of those who populated the out-ports 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 golden age of the Newfoundland out-port. 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.
