Across Canada

This map shows the range of Canadian municipalities where Salt-Water Moon has been presented since its premiere at the Tarragon Theatre (Toronto) in 1984. While it is not a comprehensive list, it includes most of the professional productions and some amateur and university productions.

The play has also been frequently produced in Great Britain, the United States and elsewhere around the world.
