Bordertown Cafe
Torchlight Theatre Presents
Bordertown Cafe by Kelly Rebar
Directed by Valerie Planche

Seventeen-year-old Jimmy faces the archetypal Canadian dilemma: stay home in Canada, with all its obvious flaws, or go south (young man) to the Land of Opportunity. Jimmys dad is the powerfully encoded Western hero of American popular myth  the cowboy as trucker, living his freedom and riding the roads of Wyoming. He offers Jimmy the prosperity of his new American home, a large modern house fully equipped with everything, including a capable new wife. In contrast, Jimmys mom, Marlene, is a failed wife and a weak, tentative mother. The home she has made for herself and her son on the Canadian side of nowhere is provisional and shabby: half finished, ill equipped, badly decorated. What will Jimmy do?

This production is part of Torchlight Theatre's emerging artist initiative.
