Written and performed by Sean Casey Leclaire
A band of boys graduate from a high school in a rough and tumble town near Montreal. After a life-changing moment of violence and recovery, the narrator, one of the boys, follows the two older boys out west. With ruthless self-scrutiny and compassion, the story dives into the nature of deep friend-ship, forgiveness, and the fleeting and fragile moments that define our lives.
The solo show Small Town Boys asks the audience uneasy questions. Does a homeless person shame us all? Is fear stronger than love? What is the power of vulnerability in men?
