DOWNSTAGE PRESENTS THIS WORLD PREMIERE WITH THE GENEROUS SUPPORT

OF HIT & MYTH PRODUCTIONS!

This fast-paced comedy takes us to a community hockey rink. Two dads and their sons are sentenced to the

dressing room to sort out a misunderstanding. As rivalry turns to friendship, these men teach themselves what it really means to win. Men Express Their Feelings dives into hot topics such as hockey culture, male emotional literacy and sexuality.

 

This world premiere comedy features excellent Calgary talent both on and off stage and is written by one of Canada’s brightest playwrights, Sunny Drake.

 

Sunny Drake is a playwright, theatre creator and performer. He has toured his theatre works to over 80 venues in 55 cities across Canada, Australia, the US, and Europe, bringing challenging work to a wide range of audiences from elderly ladies in regional theatres to queers in underground warehouses. His plays have been translated into 4 languages for projection of surtitles: French, Spanish, German and Italian. He was born in Australia and has lived in Canada since 2011.
