March Retro Reading
Zac and Speth by Rick Chafe

After running away together in 1991 to Vancouver, where they learn about neo-anarchism and run afoul of the law, Zac and Speth spend the next ten years trying to sort out their love affair and stop the American annexation of Canada. Teenage love, the Gulf War, a sexual expatriate, hippies, punks, poverty, and draft beer. A comedy that’s got it all!

Rick Chafe is the writer of Shakespeare’s Dog (MTC) and The Secret Mask, which was presented as part of the 2011-12 Prairie Theatre Exchange season, and is the co-writer of Strike! The Musical.
