Master storyteller and former Ballet BC performer John Grady is best known for his performances as part of Off-Broadway’s Blue Man Group and in Spalding Gray: Stories Left To Tell. The multiple Best of Fest award-winning artist (New York, Orlando, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Edmonton Fringes) tells the true life story of his mother’s heartbreaking journey into dementia, confronting the inevitable truth of aging, and coming to terms with his own mortality. A beautifully moving story peppered with moments of joy and humour.
