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.
