Thomas Hodd’s No Man Is An Island, a play inspired by the history of Partridge Island, runs April 10-14.
Two doctors clash over the treatment of patients in a quarantine center. This play is inspired by the history of Partridge Island; a major point of Irish immigration in the mid-19th century. No Man is an Island is more than a story of immigration: it’s a story of sacrifice and belief, about facing our fear of the other, and what it takes to make a community.
Just a few kilometers away from its source of inspiration, No Man Is An Island, a play by New Brunswick playwright Thomas Hodd, is set to take the stage at the BMO Studio Theatre this week in Saint John.
Directed by TNB Artistic Director Natasha MacLellan, No Man Is An Island is the inaugural production of the Atlantic Repertory Company (ARC), a professional theatre residency program recently launched by the Saint John Theatre Company.
“No Man Is An Island is a special play,” said SJTC Artistic Director Stephen Tobias. “The story is full of emotion, history and meaning. It is an original work written by Thomas Hodd, a seasoned writer born and raised in Saint John. The play is special not only for the reasons above but also because it marks a special point in the development of our organization and the Atlantic Canadian theatre scene as a whole.”
Tickets for all performances are available at the theatre’s box office or online through Ticketpro.
