When Bobby Langford arrives in Digby, Nova Scotia, looking for work as a cook on a fishing boat, he finds himself renting a room from Walter Letteney, a nervous eccentric and ne’er-do-well who occupies an old warehouse on the waterfront. What follows is a comic, compelling portrait of two men attempting to reconcile the contradictions of community life. The third play in his Digby County trilogy, Brindley Town continues Woolaver’s investigation of our society’s racial and economic barriers and of the way in which the human spirit sometimes manages to overcome them.
