It’s a moonlit evening in a Newfoundland fishing village in 1926. Jacob Mercer has just returned home, desperate to win the heart of his former flame, Mary Snow. Mary, still reeling from the heartbreak Jacob caused when he left, has become engaged to wealthy Jerome McKenzie. But this unexpected visit from Jacob could place her entire future in peril.

This heartfelt exploration of young love is a Canadian classic. First staged by Tarragon Theatre, Toronto, in 1984, it has been produced numerous times in North America and the world since its premiere. It won the Canadian Authors Association Literary Award for Drama, the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, the Hollywood Drama-Logue Critics’ Award, and was a finalist for the Governor-General’s Award for Drama.
