Betty’s Song

A Mother, A Daughter, and a Lobster Boat

This performance contains mature language and content.

After being widowed far too young, Betty is left with a pile of bills and the inheritance of a single lobster boat. Somewhere between raising her daughter and spending Saturday nights at the Slanty Shanty, she becomes one of the first women to captain her own lobster boat in Eastern P.E.I.

This quirky coming-of-age story takes you through the perils of a tough lobster lady raising a saucy teenager in 1990s Murray Harbour North. Created and performed by Island singer-songwriter Ashley Condon, this funny and heartfelt show features original music and enough memories to fill a family photo album.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
