  • Battlefords Community Players present-Trad Tuesday April 21, 2015 to Saturday April 25, 2015 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Dekker Centre for the Performing Arts
    Trad's entertaining story portrays two old men in the present-day west of Ireland: Father and Son . Their ages are fabulous, in an Aesopian way. Thomas the son is 100 years old. His father, Joe, is obviously older, but who's counting when the years have piled on so? One day, Thomas just happens to mention that he fathered a son 70 years ago. Joe insists that they travel to find the last remaining successor in the family line. An absurd journey motif springs up around the pair's undertaking, although "journey" may be an ambitious term for an old man with one arm and an older man with one leg. Taking a road they've rarely travelled out of their village, Joe tells Thomas stories that on the surface are funny, even silly. All these stories are unsubtle references to darker stories of Ireland's past poverty – bad stories of a hard life, but it never did anyone any good to "stand still and face backwards" as Joe says. For all the humor, the stories are eventually useful for Thomas. The anecdotes are not merely a unique communication between father and son. Thomas is a stranger in his own strange land. He constantly asks to turn around, go back home, abandon the quest, which his centenarian-plus father will not let him do. In this way, albeit a tad late, the father is preparing the son for life. In a most traditional way. Show runs 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm. For tickets please call the Dekker Centre for the Performing Arts at 306-445-7700 or visit dekkercentre.com.
