Western Gold Theatre presents the English language world premiere of The Ballad of Georges Boivin
“… a theatrical road-movie brimming with vulnerability… Even after great loss, love is possible.” ~ Alix Forgeot, L-Express.ca
At 77, Georges Boivin decides to “give the dice a roll.” Georges just lost his wife, you see, the “centre of his universe.” He’s terrified “he no longer exists for anyone.” But there is life after 70, and it must continue even after great loss. With his three friends, he sets out on a road trip from Québec to Vancouver in search of his first love whom he hasn’t seen in 50 years.
Featuring Jay Brazeau and John Innes alternating in repertory as Georges Boivin.
Directed by Jack Paterson
