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, is a memoir about growing up in a small town Ontario hotel and motel.  This show has been presented in workshop form at Q Space, The Monarch TavernThe Gladstone Hotel, and Amp Studio Café in Toronto as well at the RCHA Club in Kingston and the Albion Hotel (Upstairs) in Guelph.  Recent performances of Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian have helped raise funds for various causes in Toronto as part of AlterNuit a GartenSpiel Production with all proceeds going to Toronto Overdose Prevention Society; at the Free Times Café as part of an evening of music and theatre in support of St. Stephen's Community House; and in Peterborough at The Porch and Pint with all proceeds going to support the Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough.
