The story, set in Aylesford, Nova Scotia, in the eighteen-thirties, tells how a poor but conscientious and highly resourceful clergyman, Horatio Dogberry, sets out to marry off his three daughters. With the running of the first stagecoach in Nova Scotia, the Government is offering a subsidy of twenty-five pounds to any householder on the route who will open his home as an inn for the passengers. Horatio accepts the subsidy and spends it on a wonderful gown for his daughters to share, and lies in wait for eligible male passengers.

The year is 1913. War with Germany is imminent. Rudyard Kipling, the British Empire's greatest apologist, is at the peak of his literary fame. This play explores the nature of a man who loses his balance when devotion to family and country clash. World War I breaks out, and Kipling's son, Jack, is determined to fight, but the Army and the Navy both reject him because of his extremely poor eyesight. Undaunted, Kipling uses his influence to land Jack a commission in the Irish Guards, sparking off a bitter family conflict.
The essence of the play focuses on living
in a lighthouse which is the beacon in the life of the family who live there
and the surrounding community. Several family members are engaged in
fighting the war while the rest are trying to resurrect an industry for the
community for those who return. The lighthouse keeper is also the mayor of
the community. The family is close and enjoys family moments while enduring
the heartaches that the war can bring.
