Even dead, Sarah's Grampa tells the best stories.
Spinning You Home introduces a remarkable chapter in Canada's gold rush history while exploring the nature of unconditional love that binds and transcends even death.
It is 1951. A storm rages. Sarah conjures her Grandfather back from the grave and into her world. Trapped in his cottage on Salt Spring Island, Sarah and the old man, a loner with a passion for history and spinning tales, learn one another as they bring to life the bizarre and haunting story of legendary gold prospector John (Cariboo) Cameron and his beautiful child-bride, Sophia.
Inspired by true events and produced and spun by award-winning playwright Sally Stubbs, Spinning You Home is a celebration of the power of storytelling.
