Tell us about your show.

Small Town Boys is a love story between three boys, two who die early, and one who’s still with us. We explore how no man is born violent and how the early seeds of violence are   sown. The show also looks at the nature of time, through the motif of a train and rail track as a symbol for linear time and the repetitive use of the word “moment” and accompanying gestures that speak more to timelessness. It is a memory play, and how we so often use memory, to imprison ourselves, and reinforce false masks we put on to live socially.

Describe your show in three words.

Devastatingly beautiful story.

Why should someone come see your show?

If you have ever lost someone precious to you, and you cannot love fully now because of that loss, come and see this show. And be prepared to notice how tragedy does, in fact, turn to comedy and vice versa. It’s a continuum of energy, is all.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Probably Batman, as he’s a dark character, but seeks the light.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Basic Training looks interesting.
