Set in 1906, Dollybird tells the story of pregnant Moira, banished by her embarrassed family to the Canadian Prairies. The term ‘dollybird’ meant either ‘housekeeper’ or ‘prostitute’ in the 1900s west. Twenty-year old Newfoundlander Moira Burns is determined to survive, and even thrive, in small town Ibsen, despite the stories that circulate about her past.
