Peter is trying to tell us his story. He has lived “a colourful life”, not that he’s bragging about it. It’s just the way it is when you’ve been abandoned as a child (twice) and you end up living under a bridge or in a motel with a circus carney. So now Peter is putting on a show, using his most treasured possessions as props and an unpublished memoir as a kind of script. He’s not necessarily a major player in the memoir – definitely not the main character – but he doesn’t mind improvising.
A raucous, heartbreaking and slightly unhinged performance of love and abandonment from celebrated Canadian theatre artists Daniel MacIvor and Daniel Brooks.
