"When all I can do is pray, what will I pray for?"
Deb Patterson's bold work intersects core-area residents with a disabled food bank volunteer in an attempt to unlock the mystery of how neighbourhoods evolve, and how we cope with the unstoppable processes of destruction.
Drawn from a series of first person accounts – each with their own unique perspective on the strengths and challenges of this troubled area, Sargent & Victor & Me is a haunting narrative infused with a potent honesty that illuminates Patterson’s capacity to touch difficult and often dark subject matter with humour and grace.
Thunder Bay shows will take place at Trinity Hall (30 Algoma Street South).
October 1 & 2, at 7:00 pm.
Tickets will be sold at the door:
$20 adults - $10 students

"10×10 is a fantastic convergence of writers, actors, and directors, though it is truly the writers who are at the forefront of this event."
