Steven Bush has a few stories to tell…
Stories of first love, summer stock, heady triumphs and rude awakenings on the path from the American Midwest to The Big Apple to Toronto the Good. Stories of discovering Canada in the game-changing ‘60s & ‘70s while Canada was re-visioning itself; stories of exuberant collective creations, theatre of rage and ritual, and re-visioned classics.
Stories of praise for fellow travellers who lit the way with off-the-wall brilliance, non-stop music, wonder drugs, and human folly.
Stories of grace, wisdom and sly humour gleaned from the soul-building work of a life in theatre.
"What a treat to read. Your stories paint a picture of a time of transformation in Canadian Theatre and offer insights into the building of so many foundations. The storytelling … pulls in my imagination and my heart."
--Jani Lauzon (actor/writer/director)
"A gentle, intelligent, thoughtful and heart warming read. …I was engaged and curious throughout."
-- Sallie Lyons (dancer/choreographer/movement educator)
"I really enjoyed reading one “moment” at a time…they feel like meditations. It’s got a charming, reflective and unpretentious attitude. I am neither of your generation nor cultural heritage nor ethnicity (though I think we share an element of displacement) — but I had no problem finding an ‘in.’"
--Jivesh Parasram (Artistic Director, Rumble Theatre/Artistic Producer,
