By David French
Directed by Ravi Jain
Produced by Whynot Theatre
This glorious production of David French's Salt-Water Moon was a sold-out hit in Toronto last season. The beloved Canadian classic about love, loss, and reconciliation was daringly re-imagined by visionary director Ravi Jain. With its boldly spare staging, this production asks "Can you ever truly return home?"
"With just two actors and only a few physical elements, the audience will be transported to the place of David French's timeless tale; Newfoundland under a star-filled sky," explains Jain.
It's 1926 and every day the villages of Newfoundland are being abandoned by their young for a new life in the big city. But eighteen year-old Jacob Mercer has come home to Coley's Point, from Toronto, to win back his former sweetheart Mary Snow, who 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.
