About the show:

Stan, a.k.a. “Definition” is a rising freestyle MC – or at least he was, until his life’s passion lost out to his drug habit. Now on the road to recovery and preparing for a come-back show, Stan confronts his demons and recounts his harrowing journey through the wild highs and deep lows of addiction. Using spoken word and hip hop, this pulse-pounding, full-sensory experience deals in the brutal realities of addiction and drug culture, and the redemption that can lie in recovery. This highly popular production has been updated to include content addressing the current fentanyl and opioid crises. As addiction weaves its way through communities across BC, this powerful piece is more timely than ever.

Roles to be cast:

Stan, 17 (he/him), open ethnicity – An up-and-coming rapper with a dry sense of humour. Actor must be able to rap and sing tenor. The actor playing Stan also embodies the roles of a counsellor, teacher Stan’s father, sister, and others.
