Dayboil

By Sharon King-Campbell

“I love this script’s smalltown vibe and how it doesn’t hold back on facing truths. I so clearly recognize these women and connect to their stories. I’m honoured to debut this script with such a strong cast. I can’t wait for audiences to feel the power of this piece.” – Richie Wilcox, AD

Dayboil examines the fragile and fraught relationship between two sisters, Kathy and Patricia, as they gather with Christine and Eunice for their weekly gossip over tea. But a shocking turn of events makes way for a day filled with stronger drinks as the gossip shifts inward and secrets of the sisters are revealed. Ship’s Company brings this rural drama to the stage with the premiere production of this award-winning script by Newfoundland playwright Sharon King-Campbell.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We are located in Awokun, Mi’kma’ki, also known as Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, which is on land that is in the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq people. The Mi’kmaq people have been here on this land for over 11,000 years. In 1752 a treaty was signed between the British and the Mi’kmaq that detailed the sharing of the land and its resources. We know that the rights within this treaty have not been upheld. As descendants of settlers who colonized this land, it is important that we think about our relationship to the land, to Mi’kmaq culture and its people, and how we can make a future where we actually share the land and the resources it gives us. We need to think about how we can move forward to enact a future of respect and generosity. And we need to act immediately, with kindness and compassion. A major step in this process is educating ourselves. Ship’s Company Theatre is on a continuing journey of awareness and education. We encourage you to join us.
