Inspired by a true story, Solo is a tale about two teenage boys, native and non-native who come together under troubling
circumstance in Canada’s north. They are forced to embark on a “rite of
passage” journey that leads the boys into threatening wilderness
territory where they ultimately experience something life-changing.
'In a world dominated by movies, it is easy to forget
that the most powerful tool of live theatre is the
connection between audience and actor. Jerry Brodey's SOLO,
a Boy's Journey is a wonderful reminder of this
connection. Our eyes watch one man and minimal props,
but our imaginations go on a journey filled with many
characters and locations. We experience their fears, joys,
challenges and achievements and while they are transformed
on their journeys, so too are we on ours. Great stuff.'
