Shoot the Moon

August 4, 2019 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at The Guild
This August, The Guild celebrates one of Canada’s most celebrated pieces of theatre. Be transported to 1920’s Newfoundland with Salt-Water Moon by David French.
It’s a splendid, moon-filled night at Coley’s Point in August, 1926. Eighteen-year old Jacob Mercer has returned from Toronto to the tiny Newfoundland outport, hoping to win back his former sweetheart, Mary Snow. But Mary has become engaged to wealthy Jerome McKenzie, and she is still hurt and bewildered by Jacob’s abrupt departure a year earlier. She will not be easily wooed.
This production is being presented by Island theatre artists Helen Killorn and Justin Shaw. Island audiences may remember Killorn from her work in Melville Boys at Victoria Playhouse, and various Feast Dinner Theatre productions. Shaw may be recognized from his work with the Popalopalots Live Improv Comedy, Vagabond Productions, and his Island Fringe Festival solo show The Wrestling Play. Killorn and Shaw originally mounted Salt-Water Moon independently in August 2018 in Fort McMurray, Alberta, but their common passion for this project inspired them to continue their journey to bring the story to their hometown of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
“What a privilege it is for Justin and I to come home and share such a beautiful piece of theatre with our community,” says Killorn. “A lot of heart and soul went into the original production last summer, and for us to remount it not only in our home town, but also at a space such as The Guild, truly is an honour.”
“Having the Guild supporting Helen and I on this project is a dream,” says Shaw. “Being able to share this story in the heart of downtown Charlottetown during the summer provides Helen and I the opportunity to present this production to a broad audience at a professional scale. To say we’re excited is an understatement.”
This classic East Coast love story guarantees to be an unforgettable theatre experience filled with laughter, drama, and a powerful reminder of the integrity of love.
This production is being presented as a Sunday matinee at The Guild (111 Queen St., Charlottetown) throughout the month of August. Tickets are available online at http://www.theguildpei.com and at The Guild Box Office. For more information, please call 902-620-3333.
