Andy Jones, one of Newfoundland’s most well-known actors and writers, will have a month long residency at Eastern Edge during which he will continue to develop The Abbie Table Project with visual artist Peter Breckon and members of the “Growing Up, Up In Cove” Collective. The centerpiece of the project is a 10′ X 4′ table inscribed with the personal story of Abbie Ellis Whiffen, “Growing Up, Up in Cove.” Narrating the life of a Newfoundland family engaged in the salt fishery from the 1920’s to the 1950’s, the story has been illuminated by several dozen contributors. His residency at Eastern Edge will include performances in the form of public readings and interpretive theatre pieces.
