The Colony of Unrequited Dreams

The Colony of Unrequited Dreams

###Do you enjoy theatre?

Based on the classic novel by Wayne Johnston, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams is a fictionalized retelling of the story of Joseph R. Smallwood, the man who led Newfoundland into Confederation with Canada and who served as our first premier for 23 years. Smallwood’s story is anchored and propelled by one of Johnson’s most memorable creations: the fictitious Sheilagh Fielding, a caustic newspaper columnist whose own battles with the past and alcohol addiction find full vent and expression in her tireless dogging of Smallwood’s climb to power.

Based on the novel by Wayne Johnston, adapted for the stage by Robert Chafe, directed by Jillian Keiley, and composed by Patrick Boyle.

Show length: 2 hours 45 mins (with 2 intermissions)
