Theatre Smash Presents
Patrick Kwok-Choon plays Newfoundland "Flounder" Willow, an awkward 15-year-old cadet. A loner who is scared of being alone, his life revolves around his family, his synthesizer, his French-camp love Evelyn, and his parents' family business - The Romantic Times, a self-published newspaper. When his mother returns home from her second honeymoon without her husband, Newfoundland and his sisters struggle to recreate the family and home they once knew.
The cast is lead by veteran stage performers Martha Burns and Layne Coleman as Flounder's parents, with Natasha Greenblatt and Lara Jean Chorostecki playing his sisters. Martin Happer is divinity-student Hadley and Vivien Endicott-Douglas is Flounder's crush Evelyn.
Celebrating its 5th year, Theatre Smash is a multi Dora Award-nominated company dedicated to producing contemporary theatrical work with a global twist. Lead by Artistic Producers Sarah Baumann and Ashlie Corcoran, the company's critically acclaimed productions include the North American premiere of Welsh playwright Abi Morgan's Tiny Dynamite, the Canadian premiere of Swiss playwright Igor Bauersima's Norway.Today, and the first professional production of Layne Coleman's Tijuana Cure.
