SALT-WATER MOON

By David French
Directed by Ravi Jain
A Factory Theatre production touring with Why Not Theatre

By the light of a moon-filled night in 1926 Newfoundland, two lovers contemplate their future. A bold, lyrical interpretation of a classic Canadian play.

February 15 - 24, 2018 • MainStage

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.

“Ravi Jain is one of Canada’s bright lights,” says Artistic Director Jovanni Sy. “I am delighted to showcase this extraordinary director’s work here at Gateway. Ravi has taken one of the great plays from the Canadian canon and interpreted it into something that pays homage to its past and yet feels exactly right for today.”
