As part of the Cupids 400 Celebrations, Cupids 400 assisted the Old Perlican Heritage Committee to stage a two day series of events which focused on various aspects of Newfoundland cultural heritage. The weekend included: storytelling, old time music, crafts, traditional dance, and an old fashioned time.
One of the highlights was “From the Lips of Our People,” a play presented by the students of Baccalieu Collegiate. Written by Newfoundland author and playwright Bruce Stagg, “From the Lips of Our People” weaves the memories of early outport life with modern day issues. These memories were presented through the reminiscences of Ben and Molly and caused the audience to experience laughter, sadness, love and longing as they drifted back in time to the “good old days.”
