17 Syllables Theatre Company requests submissions from actors for the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival production of Algonquin Highway, written and directed by Wyatt Lamoureux. 17 Syllables Theatre Company operates on a profit-share basis.
Synopsis: Close childhood friends, Alex and Nic, haven’t seen or heard from each other in five years. One fall day, out of the blue, Nic calls, so Alex drives from Toronto to pick up Nic at the Ottawa airport. After a flat tire leaves them stranded on a back road in Algonquin Park they have no choice but to talk to each other about their hurts and recent traumas, their past together and apart, and what’s happened in the time since Nic left as she and returned as he. Not the reunion Alex was expecting. Will it be the strength of their old relationship or these new changes that determines the survival of their friendship, and begins the healing for them both?
