See full performance schedule at The play begins in 1967 - the Centennial, the last year of the NHL’s original six and the “summer of love.” Five friends - four boys and a girl - gather for a game of street hockey. This quintessentially Canadian comedy follows these friends over a thirty year period against the backdrop of a changing country, through evolving identities, persistent friendships, and a boundless love of the game. "Pocket Rocket took me back to my own adolescence - it is filled with humour, pathos and heart-wrenching emotion that will find you laughing one moment and deep in thought the next." - Arts Connection This production will be directed by Linda Moore, the former Artistic Director of Neptune Theatre.
