Deck stars Cliv

One-man wonder returns

Were you lucky enough to catch Lucas Myers’, The Cromoli Brothers, at The Sunset Theatre in Wells last summer?

Were you lucky enough to catch Lucas Myers’, The Cromoli Brothers, at The Sunset Theatre in Wells last summer?

Whether you saw it or not, we are all in for a surefire treat when the Nelson based actor and theatre creator, returns to Wells this weekend with his latest offering, DECK: How I Instigated Then Overcame An Existential Crisis Through Home Improvement.

Seriously, how can you ignore a title like that?

DECK examines the fine line between perfectionism and obsession, chaos and freedom and why a piece of 2×6 lumber isn’t really two inches by six inches.

Not even close. DECK stars Cliv, a meticulous single parent of two who has been forced to reassess his future after taking major losses in the recent recession.

He embraces a new start as a small town, eco-conscious, back-to-the-lander.  His attempts at self-sufficiency are hijacked by a bad house buy and he is forced to try his hand at home improvement.

DECK is a darkly hilarious take on the modern milieu of a small town, semi-urban environment.

The show runs this Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21, 8 p.m. at The Sunset Theatre, located at 2357 Pooley Street in Wells.

Tickets are $12 cash only at the door and the show is not for children.

The artist recommendation is age 14+. To reserve your tickets today call 250-994-3400 today, or visit, www.sunset-theatre.com.
