Life in Leechtown portrayed in play

Sooke playwright Linda Green Abraham’s play Jake Goes to Leechtown will be re-staged with weekend

Sooke playwright Linda Green Abraham’s play Jake Goes to Leechtown will be re-staged with weekend performances at the Sooke Harbour House pavilion.

A cast of local actors, members of the T’Sou-ke First Nation, musicians and staff from the Sooke Harbour House will take part in the production.

The play will feature new music with photos projected onto the stage.

A Workshop performance of a new vignette show by Katrina Kadoski, about the history of the Sooke Harbour House will be presented.

The play centres around a young man searching for his father in Leechtown, which sprang up in the 1860s when gold was found in the Sooke and Leech rivers.

Producers of the show are still looking for old photos from the era and photos of the owners and grounds of the Sooke Harbour House  before 1979.

If you have any photos, please email kat.music@hotmail.com.

The show runs July 4, 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at Sooke Harbour House, Stick in the Mud and Sooke Region Museum.
