Last season, this adaptation (by Connie Newhook with assistance from Darren Ivany) was brought to the stage thanks to a funding partnership between the Freshwater Come Home Year Committee and the Port of Argentia, and we are happy to bring it back to the stage this season. Adapted from the works of Jerry Doyle andEileen Houlihan, this play captures the dramatic events that took place in 1941 through the eyes of the Argentia residents who were moved out of their homes to make way for the American Naval Base during World War II. The impact of the move is still felt today by those who are connected to this history that saw a proud community give up their piece of the world for the sake of the entire world.
