Logan and I

When: Dec. 15-17, 8 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 18, 2 & 8 p.m. 2010

Michael McPhee’s 80’s-set coming-of-age story beautifully captures both the feel of the era and the angst of childhood. Dezzy is an outcast in his new school—-“prey for predators” —-until Logan (a boy who ignores the “Geneva Convention” of the schoolyard) becomes his best friend. While their friendship begins with a shared love of Transformers, it quickly (Too quickly? The boys are only nine at the time...) becomes a sexual one that Logan describes as practicing for girls. Actor Glen Matthews brings the perfect amount of a vulnerability to the damaged Logan, so that he’s painted in shades of grey rather than being seen only as a villain. McPhee is a marvel as the love-sick Dezzy. His face is an open-book, where heartbreak and humour are equally readable. (KW)

Price: $15/$20 (Dec 18, 2pm pay what you can)
