Theatre SKAM is thrilled to present the world premiere of
IT'LL COME TO ME, a one-man show by Christian Martin, playing one weekend only! TIME AND LOCATION
October 10-12, 2019 - 7:30pm nightly
(doors open at 6:30pm, festival seating - no latecomers admitted!)
849 Fort Street (SKAM Satellite Studio)
The harrowing and fully jazzed-up tale of one person’s attempt to make it in the big city, the spiral down, and the redemption.
Christian Martin's semi-autobiographical account of his time in New York City kicks off with a goodbye to his old friend Matthew Payne (who is also directing the show), as Christian leaves on a bus with literally $1 in his pocket and a dream in his heart. From there we meet dozens of people who move in and out of his life, all performed by Christian himself and underscored by a jazz duo on drums and trumpet.
