"A One Man Show For My Brother"

Its amalgam of working class and pseudo-European charm notwithstanding, for many Montrealers this town revolves around the student life. Fortunately, for every evening ruined by marauding popped-collar types ineffectually broadcasting their masculinity along the Main, a careful eye can identify something worth salvaging from the tuition-paying set. Student theatre is one such thing, even among the bookish McGill-types more likely to be caught practicing for their future role as policy wonks than contributing to the art world. Written and directed by Anna Roth Trowbridge, "A One Man Show For My Brother" is a poetic and cerebral trip through the New Mexican desert. It explores troubling themes of mental health against the backdrop of local mythologies and familial narratives, and addresses the all too human desire to find reason in ostensibly irrational acts.

Aye, lay off McGill for once! The popped collars and policy wonks may be louder than everyone else, but they're not indicative of the student body. There are thousands of art-loving McGillers that blend in in the city, lurking in alleys off the Main and waiting to bite unsuspecting native Montrealers that insist on stereotyping them. That said, thanks for the shout out.

I'm a McGiller myself. I don't pop my collar or hide in alleysbut I've bitten native Montrealers...identity crisis?
