JULY 13 OTTAWA: COMING UP! CanadaScene Festival, NAC: If a Place
Kitty and Daniel Daly of Riverhead, St. Mary’s Bay, had 12 children, six of whom were very tall and six of whom had skeletal dysplasia, currently known as persons of short stature. Their great-grandaughter (and great-niece), songwriter Diana Daly, dancer-actor Louise Moyes, and director Anne Troake have been asked to tell their stories.

In a journey of friendship and song, Diana and Louise bring the Daly family’s memories to life through powerful images, stories, dance,  laughter, and a bit of Carlton Showband!  If a Place Could Be Made weaves family, compassion, the web of tales that surround us, with the only tale we can really tell well, which is our own.
