HERE’S JOHNNY: October 11-14 / 18-21/ 25-28

HERE’S JOHNNY: October 11-14 / 18-21/ 25-28. Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00pm. $25 / $20 students/seniors/wage-challenged. HERE’S JOHNNY is a gritty tale drawn from the streets of an Here'sJohnny_10_17inner city neighbourhood, where questions are answered by more questions and choices often end badly. Inspired by true events, we follow the exploits and interactions of the five principal characters: Johnny, the Security Systems salesman, “I still gotta a heartbeat”; Bob, the neighbourhood guy, I’m so sick and tired of all the crap”; Ginger, the lifer on the streets; “C’mon it’s the oldest profession”; the new arrival, Candy, “I don’t want to think about tomorrow”; and Billy the punk. “Is that all you got?”  The audience will also be immersed in the 24/7 chatter and mayhem of the streets. Running the gamut from dark to humorous, touching to tragic, from the absurd to very real, HERE’S JOHNNY provokes a response in the audience from outrage to discomfort, rattling our cages as only street life can do. The characters may not be all likeable however they are human and deeply flawed in human ways. Adult Subject Matter. Coarse language and simulated sex.  Tickets: https://bruha.com/event/2028 (Oct 12) Further ticket links under  “Buy Tickets” tab.
