A mystery and a love story spanning five decades.

Based on the classic novel by Wayne Johnston, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams is a retelling of Newfoundland’s first premier Joseph R. Smallwood. His story is propelled by one of Johnston’s most memorable creations: the fictitious Sheilagh Fielding, a caustic newspaper columnist whose own battles with the past and alcohol addiction find full vent in her tireless dogging of Smallwood. The Colony of Unrequieted Dreams is the story of a man whose career is buoyed and sometimes sunk by his unresolved feelings for a woman he never allowed himself to love.

The Colony of Unrequited Dreams is adapted for the stage by award-winning playwright Robert Chafe, well known for Tempting Providence and Oil and Water.
