Harry Sullivan hasn’t seen his son Drew in thirteen years, and now Drew is coming to Harry’s Saskatchewan ranch for a visit. This poignant comedy tells the story of two men who are too stubborn to give in to feelings of the heart.
Mending Fences portrays human drama that is relevant to anyone who has ever been a parent, a son or a daughter, which includes us all. It tells a story that spans two generations but takes place over a few days. It is a powerful play that uses hockey as the symbol of a powerplay between father and son.
Flashbacks to Harry’s youth, middle age and to Drew’s teens give us insights into the lives of these characters. The actors all play multiple roles.
Character Breakdown: *ALL ROLES ARE OPEN ETHNICITY
Harry, M, 59 and also plays the character of his own Father. Preferably 6′ or taller (not a deal breaker though). The actor who plays this role should pass for 50 to 60. Ability to differentiate characters a must. Harry is a stubborn but loving man who has a hard time showing his feelings.
All other roles have been cast.
