Written and Performed by Patrick Keating / Directed and Dramaturged by Stephen Malloy / Sound Design by Noah Drew / Lighting Design by Jayleen Pratt / Set, Props, and Costume Design by Barbara Clayden / In association with Main Street Theatre and Urban Crawl
Our association with Inside/Out came by way of our then Managing Director, Kirsty Munro. She attended an early workshop of the show at Little Mountain Gallery, a staple of the East Side indie theatre scene and home to Main Street Theatre. Over 60 people crammed into the space to see Patrick Keating’s solo show. As soon as the reading ended, she knew that Neworld should be a part of getting Inside/Out to a larger audience.
Patrick is kind, soft-spoken and sincere; Inside/Out is his real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s penitentiary system. And that’s the thing – you look at Patrick and think, ‘this guy robbed a bank?’ Patrick’s honest and engaging delivery of his funny, sad, and stirring true story helps dismantle our ideas of what a ‘criminal’ looks like – and helps us better understand how language, race and class play a very real part in our lives as Canadians. It’s about a man’s search for community: the community of the street, the community of prison, and of the theatre.
“Writing and performing Inside/Out is one of the best choices Keating ever made.” – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier
