“Area 33” by Natalie Meisner
April 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT$10
AREA 33 BY NATALIE MEISNER – FRIDAY, APR 23 AT 7:30PM
Chloe lost her mother to addiction and has since been raised by her Uncle who, recognizing her talent with numbers and computers, has involved her in increasingly dodgy aspects of his business as a buyer and seller of lobsters. This has made her something of a pariah in the village. It isn’t unusual for her to be “buzzed” by pick-up trucks as she walks along the road. One such day, short on hope for the future and doubtful about the existence of intelligent life on earth, she steps into a local joke: The Shag Harbour UFO* museum. The curator, Evelyn is like no other adult she knows. She does not offer counselling or advice. She is not even particularly pleasant. Perhaps for this reason they become friends. But Evelyn herself has a secret: She is an undercover officer working with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to investigate fraudulent seafood sales.
Area 33 is about trust, lobsters and the search for signs of intelligent life one summer at the Shag Harbour UFO Museum.
*The Shag Harbour UFO Incident Society is a real place. It is located in an aging yellow Captain’s house on the lighthouse route of N.S.
