Roller Coaster is a four part monologue exploring why we go to war, the bigger significance of Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and Harry Potter, Donald Trump's presidency, and the imminent collapse of civilization, and an exploration of who our real gods are. Award-winning Fringe Festival veteran TJ Dawe (Burn Job, Medicine, Marathon, The Slipknot) brings his latest solo show to Victoria, BC for a Vancouver Island debut, presented by Oak Bay Parks, Recreation, and Culture. Show is suitable for ages 13 & up.
