The Secret Mask
By Rick Chafe
Directed by Marti Maraden
A combination of humour and heartbreak, The Secret Mask tells the story of an unexpected reunion between a father and son. Forty years after Ernie walked out on his family, his son George is contacted to help his father who has had a stroke. Faced with the reality of caring for a father he never knew, George struggles to make sense of their past and move on with their newly entwined future.
The production contains scenes with some coarse language.
