A MUSICAL EVENING FEATURING SONGS AND STORIES OF RUM RUNNING ON PEI FLAVOURED WITH FISH CAKES AND BEANS BY THE WHEELHOUSE IN GEORGETOWN
FEATURING ROWENA AND HANK STINSON
In 1902 the government of Prince Edward Island banned the sale of alcohol to its citizens thus beginning the longest, most successful cottage industry the Island has ever known.
For nearly fifty years rum running and bootlegging provided a living for countless Islanders and fortunes for a few enterprising businessmen including Captain Edward Dicks from Georgetown. His legendary rum running schooner, The Nellie J Banks, was eventually seized by the prohibition police and hauled into the government wharf in Charlottetown. Captain Dicks was thrown into jail and subsequently prosecuted by the Canadian Department of Customs and Excise. But we don’t want to give everything away, so come to the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown and find out how it all ended.
Tickets: $45 adults
