Salt Water Moon PosterBy David Finch

Directed by: Lloy Coutts

Performances: October 16-19 & 23-26, 1996            

Venue: Hagey Hall 180, Humanities Building


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 she will not be easily wooed.  It is a story filled with humour, sadness and compassion.  Does love conquer all?

The University of Waterloo Drama Department will be presenting the first production of the 1996-97 season, SALT WATER MOON.  Written by David French and directed by Lloy Coutts, SALT WATER MOON is “tender as a caress, delicate as a love poem ... tremendous!”   - Southam News
