admin Events

Performed & Created by Bruce Horak
Originally Directed by Ryan Gladstone

Bruce Horak plays himself in this show, his Blyth festival debut; A gifted performer and a brilliant visual artist, Bruce has been  legally blind since childhood. In ASSASSINATING THOMSON, Horak shares the unique way he sees the world while exploring the truth and lies behind the mysterious death of one of Canada’s greatest artists and unofficial 8th member of the Group of Seven, Tom Thomson. Weaving the famous painters’ biography with the story of the loss of his own vision, Bruce draws the audience into a deep connection to life and the true value of art. Throughout the performance Bruce paints a live portrait of the audience.  At the end of the show the painting is auctioned off to the highest bidder and proceeds go to a local charity. In this instance Bruce will donate to the Almost Famous Players, a local group of developmentally challenged adults who perform various productions throughout the year.
