My colleague, author and playwright Dennis Foon is a part of an upcoming production called TRUE BELIEVERS.
In his own words:
MY ACID TRIP is a man's look back at his first hallucinogenic experience, and how that illuminated the hidden truths about his immigrant family, their secrets, and the day his great uncle got a boiled potato stuck in his mouth.

Three unique tales of finding, losing, and having faith. A Jewish man struggles to find his own place within faith. A family secret leaves a middle-aged woman on the brink of losing it. An aging soap star reaches out to her fans in her final and greatest performance.
Well-known Vancouver film, theatre, and television veterans -- Gemini Award-winner Dennis Foon, Governor General Award-nominee Lorena Gale, and Gemini Award-winner Ian Weir -- return to the stage.
Don't miss this incredible evening of dynamic one-person plays by three of Canada's most respected playwrights.
