ON STAGE: Guillermo Verdecchia's FRONTERAS AMERICANAS
There's a half joke, half truth out there that says: if you want to find the Canadian in the room, just call everyone there an American. The Canadians will usually pipe up in protest pretty quickly.
But is it the same if you're a hyphenated Canadian -- someone who was born in one place, but grew up here? Where, then, do you say you're from? And how Canadian do you feel?
These are questions actor and writer Guillermo Verdecchia explores in his play FRONTERAS AMERICANAS. The Argentinian-born, Kitchener Ontario-raised performer won much acclaim for his work, including a Governor General's award. It's now getting a revival at Soulpepper that opens tonight and runs till June 12.
