Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian

Presented by Threshold Theatre

Every old town in Ontario has one on its main drag. The hotel. A historic building whose charm has been reincarnated--or not. I spent part of my childhood in one of those. Follow the highway out of the small town, and before long you'll pass a roadside motel. I spent my adolescence in one of those. Allistonian Brockvillian Dionysian, is a memoir about growing up in a small town Ontario hotel and motel. This show has been presented in workshop form at various venues in Toronto, Guelph, Peterborough and Kingston. ABD is written & performed by Mark Cassidy, directed by Hume Baugh

Music, memory and Molson Golden infuse this hilarious and heartwarming piece about coming of age in a hotel & motel in small town Ontario.
