Normally when i work with a theatre company on their poster, i usually just take the photo that's going on the poster and their graphic designer takes it from there, but this time the lovely folks at @matchstick.theatre
challenged me with making the entire poster, so here it is.

Joyride, the play that launched the celebrated Cape Breton playwright's career, was first performed at the Atlantic Fringe Festival in 1994. It is a reflection of post-industrial Cape Breton, a setting that is recognizable today. In the play we meet Rachel, earning minimum wage as a convenience store clerk, Jess, working for his father’s seasonal landscaping business, and Craig, home on probation and unemployed. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, the three friends get caught up in a whirlwind.
