The Play - No Change In The Weather

The Play

Peggy O’Brien has died. Her family and friends sneak her corpse out of the funeral home (and tanning salon) and back across the water to her family home, on the unsettled island of God’s Back Pocket. As this brood of body snatchers wake Peggy into the light, a wandering American and newly stationed Constable from Quebec find themselves in the middle of a family racket that exposes decades of pettiness, secrets, and enough familial bad blood to ruin every Christmas for eternity. Estranged brothers, a child of unknown parentage, and a slide show of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most farcical political blunder, Churchill Falls, collide with the supernatural in this outlandish east coast musical that is sure to have you tapping your toes, and shaking your bewildered head. No Change in the Weather takes some of the finest Newfoundland songs and combines them with traditional sounds and instruments, memorable characters and a conclusion that turns the province’s past on its head, all working together to create a once in a lifetime theatre experience.
