“I sees them all come home. And I sees my man dancing to harbour, drunk as ever, and I sees my dead boy floating home, sewn in his sheets like a caul, borne on all the tides of the world’s waters, home from every battle, from every shock and sickness, from every accident of storm and misread stars, from every rock and shoal and treacherous reef, my dead boys drifting home by heaven’s light. “
Stella Maris was commissioned by Portsmouth City Council for performance in the Naval Dockyard as part of the Millennium celebrations in 2000. A cast of professional actors and local people performed the story of Davey and Stella Morris in the final part of the Heaven’s Light trilogy.
