The out vigil
Mere hours before the opening of the perilous king crab fishing season, a young Newfoundlander arrives in Alaska, desperate for a job. A local fisherman grudgingly agrees to help him out, but past & present collide when a young woman shows up. A modern fable steeped in maritime lore, The Out Vigil by Julie McIsaac questions our ability to accept the natural world for all that it is, both beautiful and terrifying.
A workshop production of The Out Vigil appeared on stage at the Havana Theatre from May 28 – 31, 2014 featuring Raes Calvert, Christina Cuglietta, Matthew MacDonald-Bain & Gili Roskies. Directed by Sabrina Evertt.
