Upon hearing that her father has had a lung removed Maggie returns home to the Maritimes. She finds her proud father still working in a mine that closed two years ago, her brother Donnie "working" at the video lotto and her wheelchair bound grandmother unable to speak anything but the "old language." This is the other side of Black Harbour and The Glace Bay Miners' Museum. Nominated for best new play at the 2000 Canadian Comedy Awards; published in Marigraph, an anthology of Maritime plays.
