ACT (a community theatre)
Based off of Newfoundland poet Al Pittman’s popular play, West moon is set in the graveyard of a Newfoundland outport which is being abandoned as part of the resettlement strategy in the mid-1960s and features an enchanting host of ghostly characters. Once a year, on All Soul’s Night, they are conscious again; they recall their lives, and yearn to know what is happening in their village and in the lives of their families and friends. It is a play of issues — of mortality and legacy, comfortable tradition versus fresh opportunity, and the fabric of community, all woven into a passionate dialogue punctuated with gentle humor.
