A one-night-only staged reading of Rick Chafe's "The Secret Mask," a moving play nominated for a Governor General's award, about a man who loses his language and finds his son. When a BC man is hospitalized with a stroke that leaves him with aphasia, he is reunited with his reluctant son from Winnipeg whom he walked out on 40 years ago. Told with a deft comic touch, a father and son learn to communicate amid fractured memories and fragile language.
