"This moving, lyrical two-hander by Kenneth Brown and hockey poet Stephen Scriver, unfolds in correspondence a la 84 Charing Cross Road and Love Letters. In a violent, epochal time in our collective history, it chronicles a tumultuous love story."

During World War II, Allan, a young Royal Canadian Air Force pilot, and Moira, an auxiliary worker at the Blatchford Field in Edmonton, try desperately to maintain their longdistance relationship. But is the printed word enough to keep love alive in a world turned upside down?

Allan is flying dangerous bombing missions over Europe. At home on the prairies, Moira is gaining new experiences as she works for the war effort. They keep in touch as they promised to do, but neither is telling the other everything — about the danger and destruction of war or about their personal lives.

Stephen Scriver

Stephen Scriver was born in Wolseley, Sask., in 1947. After graduating from university he taught school, discovering creative writing in 1974 when he won a W.O. Mitchell bursary for Saskatchewan School of the Arts.

Scriver is known for his best-selling collection of hockey poems, All Star Poet!, and has published three other books of poetry: Between the Lines, More All Star Poet!, and Under the Wings. His documentary film work has been widely seen on History Television, especially Missing On Way Back, which won a City of Regina Heritage Award and a Houston Film Festival Bronze Medal.

Of his eight one-man shows, four have had national broadcasts in Canada and one in Germany. Sparks and North of America have been translated into German, while Life After Hockey has been translated into French and German.

Brown was trained at the National Theatre School and holds a Master of Arts in dramaturgy from the University of Alberta. As an actor, he has toured to nearly every place in the country large enough to support a theatre, and has toured in four countries abroad.
