Summer Moons

July 12th, 2019 § 0 comments permalink

Two exciting productions of Salt-Water Moon are happening this summer!

The first is a touring show produced by the University of Windsor's Inspired Acting Lab. It stars James Kern as Jacob and Sofie Jarvis as Mary, and is directed by the inimitable Lionel Walsh. The show opened in Windsor last night, and will go on to tour in Lion’s Head and Kirkland Lake later this summer. Lionel has produced several of David’s plays over the years, and he brought David to the U of Windsor in 2002-2003 as writer-in-residence where they became fast friends. Lionel is a brilliant director and has a deep connection to David’s work, so I'm sure that this show is amazing. Here is the scoop on dates, locations, and tickets:

WINDSOR : July 11, 12, 13 @ 7:30 p.m.
Studio Theatre, Jackman Dramatic Art Centre, University of Windsor

LION'S HEAD : July 18-20 @ 7:30 p.m. and 21 @ 2 p.m. and 25-27 @ 7:30 p.m.

The second production is special because it's happening on PEI, where David spent nearly 40 summers. Mary and I have a great love for the Island, too, and we were happy to learn that The Guild in Charlottetown is presenting Salt-Water Moon every Sunday in August. This production stars Justin Shaw as Jacob and Helen Killorn as Mary.
