Home and Away

Book by Charlie Rhindress   Music and Lyrics by Dean Burry

“…funny, witty and heart wrenching…(it’s) a hard-hitting, thought-provoking drama that’s as intense as a playoff hockey game.”  Halifax Chronicle Herald

Using the structure of a hockey game this musical features fifteen original songs and tells the story of a family whose lives have been shaped by Canada’s national game. This family comes to discover that hockey isn’t the only thing holding them together.

“…it’s grand entertainment with an appeal so broadly Canadian that it has the potential to bring audiences to their feet, cheering, from one end of the country to the other.” – Sackville Tribune Post
