Salt-Water Moon, by David French, is one of Canada’s most beloved and oft-performed plays. This July, the celebrated East Coast classic comes to a front porch near you. The production will be featured on six front porches across Ontario- a site-specific tour for local audience gathering to watch on the lawn.

The project was conceived by theater creator Michelle Langille, a native East Coaster:

“This play specifically has always struck a chord with me as I grew up in small towns on the East Coast, and the fears, concerns and dreams that Mary and Jacob have in this piece are so relatable.  Anyone who grew up in a rural community understands the difficulties of being isolated, the feeling that you have to go away to make something of yourself, that there must be something better than where you are, and the fear of being trapped by your history.
