Arts Enter presents an original play, The Clam-Digger’s Daughter May 5th, 6th and 7th at the Palace Theater in Cape Charles.
This is an original script based on the 1947 film by Nell Shipman, The Clam-Digger’s Daughter, also known as the The Story of Mr. Hobbs. The story takes place in Cape Charles during the 1940s. The clam-digger Hobbs, bitter that his livelihood is being washed away, takes a millionaire investment banker to task for not financing a project that could save the waterman’s culture.
With original music by shore favorites such as Thelma Peterson, the show is a rich, historical tribute to the heritage of life on the Eastern Shore.
