Healeys 1999 classic about the healing power of theatre gets a fascinating, forward-looking production that delivers mixed results. To make the play accessible to Indigenous and culturally diverse audiences, the roles of a Toronto actor and the two war-veteran farmers he studies in 1970s rural Ontario have been taken by actors who identify as queer (Cole Alvis), Black (Andrew Moodie) and Indigenous (Craig Lauzon). Of the three, only Lauzon brings something compelling to the show. But Healeys clever narrative equally moving and funny still comes through.
