Life After Hockey (1984)

a Canadian classic

Edmonton Sun

Life After Hockey is a one-man show about a man and his obsession. “Rink Rat Brown” is found skating around on an outdoor rink under the stars. Discovering that he has an audience, Rink Rat begins to tell the tall tale of how it was he (and not former NHL great Mike Bossey) who scored the dramatic overtime goal for Canada against the Soviets in the 1984 Canada Cup.

Life After Hockey opened at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in 1985 and became an immediate smash hit. It has gone on to play over 1200 performances in four countries in three languages. It made the reputation of Kenneth Brown as a playwright/performer, and was the reason that THEATrePUBLIC became a viable theatre organization.

An amazing, poetic performance by the endearing Brown.
