In French

Lost on a Northern Ontario highway on the outskirts of civilization, 25-year old Guy fixes his eyes on the road ahead and keeps his foot on the gas. The speedometer is stuck reading 15 km/h, so Guy doesn’t even know how fast he’s driving. He has no idea where he is or where he’s headed, but the longer he drives, the more he feels a need to figure out the troubling details about what he’s running from, and how he got to this desolate place in the middle of the night.



A La Troupe du Jour production co-presented by le Théâtre la Catapulte, le Théâtre du Trillium and Prairie Scene. Culture on the Go touring projects are supported with funding provided to the Saskatchewan Arts Board by the Government of Saskatchewan, through the Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport.
