Hal also started his own company, Basin Productions, and worked in schools universities as well as prisons presenting plays dealing with racism, conflict resolution, etc.
Hal has also written and performed full-length plays, dinner theatre, and spent five summers with his company performing on the M. V. Bluenose.
Hal has settled back home in Digby, enjoying his new puppy and is very much involved with the Digby Area Theatre Society. Hal accepts commissions and writes plays for various communities and groups. Quote: “I think it is vital for communities to preserve and present their heritage.”
