West Moon

By Al Pittman, published by Breakwater Books
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.
