David Fennario's Banana BootsStreaming Video - 2013
Acclaimed playwright David Fennario has always called Montreal's working-class Verdun and Point Saint-Charles districts home. Their streets have inspired the work that's made him famous as a powerful storyteller and activist author. Join Fennario for a performance of his funny and touching one-man play Banana Boots in this classic documentary that recounts his memories of Verdun's avenues and his journey to Belfast for the Irish premiere of his hit play Balconville. You'll be invited on Fennario's own journey - how he has "worked his way down" from major theatrical performances to community theater - and his struggle to "create theater that can be used to fight back." Banana Boots marks Fennario's emergence as an actor in his own right, offering a stimulating reminder of how politics can be part of theater and vice versa.
