Pushing dark comedies to a new level, AFTER WRESTLING is a slacker-comedy turned suicide-mystery in search of love, life, and death. Hogan and his sister Leah navigate old flames, new relationships, and their mental health in a booze- and grief-fuelled debate after the suicide of Hogan’s best friend Gibby.
But even after he’s gone, Gibby is still there for Hogan …
AFTER WRESTLING stars Gabe Grey (Shakespeare in Love, Citadel Theatre and Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre) as Jaggy, the cop a little too deeply immersed into his work; Charlie Kerr (Lost Solace, Lost Solace Productions) as Hogan, the hopeless romantic with his mind in lock-down and his heart on his sleeve; Libby Osler (Hamlet, Renegade Theatre Vancouver) as Leah, Hogan’s sister and self-appointed protector; and Anthony Shim (Star Trek Beyond, Paramount Pictures) as Gibby, Hogan’s best friend and ghostly confidante.
Following the success of their last collaboration, Kill Your Parents in Viking, Alberta, which premiered to rave reviews in Toronto, Bryce Hodgson and Charlie Kerr are cementing their status as “excellent storytellers bringing unique, fresh voices to the Canadian theatre scene” (NOW Magazine) with their latest script, AFTER WRESTLING.
