A timeless tale about love and hope under the Newfoundland moon
It's 1926. The First World War is over and, every day, young people abandon the villages of Newfoundland for a new life in the big city in the neighbouring country of Canada. But eighteen-year-old Jacob has come home from Toronto to Coley's Point, to win back his former sweetheart Mary, whom he abruptly left over a year ago. By the light of a moon-filled night, the former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future together. Award-winning director Ravi Jain has re-imagined David French's beloved Canadian classic about love, loss, and reconciliation with spellbinding results.
There is NO intermission during this show.

"Startlingly romantic...reminds us why it's a classic in the first place." – Toronto Star
