The Door You Came in At EHAC

A writer visits his dying mother. He brings a book that he’d
written twenty-five years ago to read to her. It’s about her
family. But it’s also about the terrible battle – Beaumont
Hamel – that sits at the heart of both Newfoundland’s and
her family’s history. So begins The Door You Came In --
a two-man performance based on David Macfarlane’s
acclaimed memoir, The Danger Tree.

The songs and the music of The Door You Came In are
Douglas Cameron’s department. A seasoned, Genienominated
singer and performer, Cameron plays banjola,
mandolin, ukulele, and accordion. His engaging, foot-tapping
performance combines popular tunes of the day (“Pack Up
Your Troubles,” and “If You Were the Only Girl in the
World”) with original compositions. Macfarlane’s narrative
weaves seamlessly throughout the music.
The Door You Came In isn’t quite a play and it isn’t quite a
concert. It’s a musical story – sometimes funny, sometimes
tragic – that tells the tales of family, and memory, and war.
Performance time:
100 minutes (full version) / 45 minutes (school performances)
