The latest production from the Society of the Ships of 1801 is going on the road this weekend. It is called “Keppoch the Last Wake; Stories and Songs from a Ceilidh House”. There will be two performances; Saturday at 7 at Strathspey Place in Mabou and Sunday at 2 at the DeCoste Centre in Pictou.
Producer Duncan MacDonald says the show was well received this summer in Antigonish.
MacDonald says this show is set about a year later from the 2016 production, “Keppoch Kitchen Party”. Everyone gathers for a 50th anniversary party, when news comes that a neighbour has died. The production transitions to a celebration of the neighbour’s life, as his stories and songs are remembered and shared. Tickets for the shows are available at the Strathspey Place and DeCoste Centre web sites.
