The Story of Love in the Harbour
Lyrics and Music by Danielle Morgan & John Merrigan
“I know that I shall meet my fate somewhere among the clouds above; those that I fight I do not hate, those that I guard I do not love.” – William Butler Yeats
Based on an original play by Eddie Alford, The Story of Love in the Harbour is a moving musical dramatization of the romance between George McElroy, a British RAF Officer and Grace Guinan, a young Irish girl, who fight with passion to preserve their love at a time of huge change and turmoil.
Set in WW1 on the front-line in France, and in rural Ireland, the action is conveyed through stirring scene enactments on stage, compelling narration and vivid images of the period – all designed to inspire and move the audience.
The beautiful all-original music and lyrics, performed live by Danielle Morgan and orchestra, convey powerful emotions that lead us to reflect on the true meaning of heroism, sacrifice and love – timeless themes still relevant today.
