The Tragicall Historie of Nick Wade (and other fuck-ups)
Backpack Theatre, May Can Theatre · Ottawa, ON
by Fournier, Thibert, Allingham, Adams & Reid

Follows the cult-like rise and fall of a local band in the 1990s, after a half prophet/half psycho Nick Wade joins the group. Loud music and hyper-reality are used to tell this story of violence, obsession, growth, and destruction.

    I enjoyed this epidsoe. For me it had nothing to do with the mousetraps or with the alternate world. It had everything to do with the style in which they told the story.I whole heartedly love these stories when they tell it subtly. There’s one story going on and all the while they are actually telling the original and meaningful story; forwarding the plot in small steps.
