Factory presents an Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland production

Playwright(s): Robert Chafe

Directed by:
Jillian Keiley

Featuring:
Steve O'Connell
Bernadine Stapleton
Darryl Hopkins

Inspired by the true story of Jon Lien - known as the Whale Man - Between Breaths is a profoundly emotional memory play that sails through Lien's life and the dangerous, death-defying work of saving whales trapped in fishing nets off Newfoundland's coast. Over his long career, Lien saved over 500 whales and earned the respect of the island's fishermen, but his biggest fight came at the end of his life as dementia progressively conquered his body and mind.

Between Breaths is a compelling and compassionate show.
