From Donovan King:

A most excellent performance about the historic significance of Montreal’s Black Rock, performed at the Joe Beef Market by the Point Saint Charles Community Theatre!

The play is based on the experiences of the Famine Irish and the priests and nuns who cared for them in the fever sheds of Montreal, and the adoption of Irish children into French-Canadian families.  These experiences are also recorded in the annals of the Grey Nuns:
