Synopsis

Kitty and Daniel Daly of Riverhead, St Mary’s Bay, had 12 children, six of whom were very tall and six of whom had skeletal dysplasia which today is also referred to as persons of short stature.

The Daly Family Collective – their granddaughter (and great-niece), singer-songwriter Diana Daly, dancer-actor Louise Moyes, and director/collaborator Anne Troake have been asked to tell their stories. In a journey of friendship and song, Diana and Louise bring the Daly family’s memories to life through powerful images, tales, songs, dance, laughter, and a bit of Carlton Showband! If A Place Could Be Made is a story about family, strong personalities, great faith, inclusion, expansion and making the best out of what we have been given.

“Great show and remarkable story…disarming, honest, and uplifting.” (audience feedback)

“Congratulations Louise Moyes and all the gang! If a Place Could be Made is a fascinating story of an extraordinary family from St. Mary’s. Beautifully executed by Louise Moyes Diana Daly and Anne Troake. It’s funny and moving, and if you see it it might change your life. You should see it. Bring friends you love. There is so much love. We all need love. This show helps. Go! I’m going and I’ve already seen it twice. (audience feedback)
