Background


Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad was a hit at Toronto's Factory Theatre where it was nominated for a Merritt Award and the Dora Mavor Moore Award (Toronto's equivalent of the Olivier Award), named one of the 'Top Ten Plays of The Year' by The Toronto Star, has toured Canada twice, and received over forty professional productions, including several in the United States.


This production marks its European premiere.


Synopsis


“I know it probably sounds like I'm hard on Troy.


He gives up too easy.


He shouldn't give up so easy.


He's a lot like his mother that way."


Love in the bleachers. Blood on the ice.


The usual small town affair.


Teddy and Donner are two lonely working-class single parents who meet at their children's minor league ice-hockey match.


Teddy is competitive, over-dominating and believes that winning is everything, while Donner is just happy that her son is in the team enjoying himself.


As they sit next to each other by the rink over the course of the season, they grow ever closer, only to find the best and worst of themselves reflected in the game …


Love, violence and sport collide in this tender, uproarious, and sometimes disturbing story about competitive obsession and what it means to be a (single) parent.
