You were none too impressed with the Disney channel's Remember The Titans: On Ice, so discover a more elegantly interpreted athlete's story with today's Dealfind: $56 for 2 Adult Tickets to Playing With Fire: The Theo Fleury Story by Kirstie McLellan Day from Alberta Theatre Projects ($114 Value). The social message of that timeless tale of football and social equity was kind of lost among all the pyrotechnics and 100-man rap choreographies, but thankfully that is not that case when it comes to the Alberta Theatre Projects' production of Kirstie McLellan Day's acclaimed work Playing With Fire. This one-man show tells of hockey great Theo Fleury's tumultuous life, from having nurtured a lifelong love of the sport despite childhood ordeals to his days at the top, equally marked by a distinct fiery temper and a battle with substance abuse. This complex interpretation is sure to delight hockey fans and theatre buffs alike thanks to a much-lauded script and of course, the powerful performance at the heart of the action. Some moderate coarse language is involved, but mature children (14+ recommended) will have a great time with their parents as they discover another layer in this tale of passion, maturity and bravery.
