A shooting on the Vancouver Skytrain is witnessed by a twelve-year-old boy obsessed with action movies, and now he’s here to reconstruct the story for you, the audience, in the style of his favourite films. Complete with slo-mo stops, freeze frames and fast-forwards, the boy weaves in and out of every character involved, all a part of Vancouver’s diverse, fractured communities. Big Shot is a portrait of the cultural tensions that spark violence within an urban community– and a riveting piece of multi-media physical theatre.

This trilingual play (English, French and Japanese with French surtitles) features one of the best acting performances of the year on a Montreal stage. Jon Lachlan Stewart is a gifted artist originally from Vancouver who now lives in Montreal. In Big Shot, he plays a mother, her son, an old Japanese man, a policeman and a pseudo-film industry member, changing roles in seconds with pirouettes and pantomimes. The story revolves around an "action movie" inspired by a news story. Stunning!
