Homage

A new play by Anthony Black
directed by Christian Barry

Featuring:

Jerry Franken, Barbara Gordon,
Karen Bassett, Hugo Dann, Gordon Gammie,
Ann-Marie Kerr, Hugh Thompson

This new play is based on the true story of Haydn Davies, an ad executive who left his job to become one of the country’s most successful public sculptors. Homage tells the story of the construction and demolition of his seminal work, a monumental sculpture inspired by Stonehenge and built out of red Canadian cedar.
