The Canadians

South Coast Repertory
655 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa

Life is good in Port Alison, Manitoba-Thursday night hockey, beers at The Peg, nice people. But lately Gordy's interests lean more toward The Magic Flute and pottery classes. When his pal, Brendan, is gifted two all-expense paid tickets on a gay cruise, it's the opportunity of a lifetime-to experience life far from Canada! In this quick-change comedy where five actors play a ship-load of characters, small chances might lead to big changes. But can Gordy step out of his comfort zone?

Los Angeles Times - Somewhat Recommended

"...An ensemble of five takes on the throng of characters, requiring some cross-gender casting that tips the play into over-the-top parody. But I wasn't sure if my detachment (not to say rising boredom) was a result of the broadness of the acting or the easy targets of the writing."

Charles McNulty

Broadway World - Highly Recommended

"...For playwright Adam Bock's endearing new stage comedy THE CANADIANS---now having its infectiously giddy World Premiere production at Orange County's South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through October 20, 2019---the typical blueprint for the usual girl-meets-boy trope gets a fresh, heady spin and an inspired recast that elevates it higher that your average rom com."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...A couple of small-town 20something BFFs embark on the gay cruise of a lifetime courtesy of South Coast Repertory in Adam Bock's hilarious-and unexpectedly touching-World Premiere romantic comedy The Canadians."
