New Play Reading: Petty Harbour by Martyna Majok

Posted by Damaso Rodriguez on Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Under: Theatre
I'm working with a wonderful cast on Martyna Majok fantastic new play set in Newfoundland.  This is part of the Summer Playwright's Festival, which includes 22 plays read over the course of 8 days.  All performances serve as benefit for The Road Theatre Company.

On the rocky shores of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, a house stands against a storm. Outside, the boats cling to their anchors and the sea churns, waiting. One by one, three banished sons return home and discover their fisherman father has turned the house that they grew up in into a church. Soon the roads will be flooded and the men will be sealed in as the wars, stories, sermons, songs, and drinking party begin. The King Lear of Petty Harbour, it seems, is not done with his throne.

Friday August 10th at 8pm in the Theater
