Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian
Every old town in Ontario has one on its main drag. The hotel. A historic building whose charm has been reincarnated--or not. I spent part of my childhood in one of those. Follow the highway out of the small town, and before long you'll pass a roadside motel. I spent my adolescence in one of those.
Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian has been workshopped at The Monarch Tavern, The Gladstone Hotel, Amp Studio Café and Free Times Café in Toronto as well at the RCHA Club in Kingston, the Albion Hotel (Upstairs) in Guelph and at The Porch and Pint in Peterborough. Workshops of ABD have helped raise funds for MacAulay Child Development Centre, the Toronto Overdose Prevention Society; St. Stephen's Community House and the Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough. Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian made its audio play premiere as part of Theatre Kingston's Storefront Fringe 2021.
Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian will be performed in select locations T.B.A in the summer of 2022.
ABD is written & performed by Mark Cassidy, directed by Hume Baugh.
