A TOUCHING, REFRESHING AND BEWILDERING ROAD TRIP
A motley group of campers in search of adventure and thrills decides to hitch up their trailer to set out on a journey across the American continent. With a well-stocked cooler, windows wide open and music blaring, they are all set for an epic odyssey on wheels. Salty air that fills the lungs, enshrouding forests, electrifying cities and breathtaking mountains hold the promise of an unforgettable trip.
Travel from east to west with five performers and a musician who will take you on a coast-to-coast trip in fifty minutes. To present this show, they literally have trek across Canada throughout the summer of 2018.
Truck Stop: The Great Journey is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
