 About the Book 

A heart warming and hilarious musical about life, young love, growing up and growing old, going down the road, making chairs, making do, and making fun. The story of Johnny Miles, Nova Scotias Marathon King- a child-miner and grocery cart deliveryMoreA heart warming and hilarious musical about life, young love, growing up and growing old, going down the road, making chairs, making do, and making fun. The story of Johnny Miles, Nova Scotias Marathon King- a child-miner and grocery cart delivery boy who won the Boston Marathon twice and rose to the pantheon of all-time sports heroes. Pulitzer Prize winning poet Elizabeth Bishops lifestory has all the ingredients of an artists biography: struggle with adversity, financial challenges, public versus private life, a passion for beauty and truth and how to distill her experience of them into art. For 20 years, Ships Company Theatre has played an integral role in the cultural life of Nova Scotias picturesque Fundy Shore. The mission of the company is to be a centre for the production and development of Canadian and Atlantic theatre. Ships Company has built a reputation for innovative theatrical staging of some of the finest original theatre on the East Coast. All this in a unique and remarkable performance venue--under a bright blue tent aboard the M.V. Kipawo, last of the Minas Basin ferries.
