The Rocky Mountain Special
November 14–19, 2023

“…a stunning story that takes audience along on the journey to self-discovery”

— Calgary Herald

A Buddies in Bad Times Theatre production

An elderly trans woman is haunted by her cringe-worthy younger self aboard the Rocky Mountain Special, a luxury coach from Calgary to Vancouver that she’s been riding for the last forty years.

A guitar-driven, one woman musical tour-de-force about the quintessential Canadian urge to run from your past, The Rocky Mountain Special is a prayer for healing, a love letter to the lost kids of fragmented diasporas, and a playlist for the road-trip home.
