Small Town Boys

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?

Written and performed by Sean Casey Leclaire, a Canadian now living in New York and Boston. Sean is a poet, actor, and an executive coach. He lived in Kitsilano in the 1980's and was the former Managing Partner of Leclaire Hamilton Inc.
