A Christmas Carol – Keyano Theatre Company

This play was a commissioned work based on the Stephan Leacock Award-winning book by Ian Ferguson, “Village of Small Houses.” It follows Ian and his best friend Lloyd Loonskin as 10 year olds, then 15, and then again as adults. Poignant, funny, tragic. Two boys. Best friends. One is white and one is native. One is born lucky, and the other is just luck to be born. Life drove them apart and fate brought them back together again.
