A Greenmount Boy Grows Up

Profile: David Weale

by Jane Ledwell

Everything in UPEI history professor David Weale's office is Y2K compliant-no sign of an appliance with a microchip of any kind. Before we talk, he copies out lines from his new one-man-show, Greenmount Boy, in long-hand on lined paper.
