A comedy about hockey, culture, and relationships.  Two dads and their sons are sequestered to a hockey rink dressing room to sort out an incident.  Amidst a series of wild misunderstandings and ridiculous antics, these guys get to know each other and themselves a whole lot better, while redefining what it means to WIN.

The show is structured like a game of hockey, into three periods, with instant replays and characters stepping out to commentate this high-stakes game of emotions. So we hope you’re ready to cheer them on! 

Men Express Their Feelings was first produced in 2020 by Downstage Theatre (Calgary) with the generous support of Hit and Myth Productions. Sunny Drake gratefully received development support during his writing process from PTC (Vancouver) and Factory Theatre (Toronto). The original production was directed by Clare Preuss.
