I love one-person shows, especially the kind that Jim Sands has created. Jim’s got a great story about his uncle, Charlie Sands, who played in the NHL in the 30s and 40s. Somehow, the story also includes Star Trek. And Shakespeare. And relationships between fathers and sons. And marketing versus morality. And a sing-along. Jim tells this tale with passion and honesty, and had me cheering on all the players.
It’s not a slick, polished piece. But sometimes you don’t want fine dining, you want chili and toast in a big, comfy, red chair, and someone to tell you a great story, just like this one.

PLANK MAGAZINE: AN UNEXPECTED TREASURE
"This wasn't a superficial play about hockey facts or the heroic journey of small town boy who becomes a star, although there were elements of that, of course. But there was so much more. This is a human story about relationships and perseverance and family and mistakes and triumphs. And I certainly wasn't expecting to hear a comparison between hockey and Shakespeare's plays!"
