The Making of a Great Moment

Available in Library

Mona Barnes and Terry Dean are two award-winning actors from Victoria, Canada who are touring a show, Great Moments in Human Achievement, across the continent. By bicycle.


Featuring onstage bicycling, puppet masks, quick changes, made up historical facts, sleeping bags, theater jokes, special skills, philosophical arguments that use sphincter muscles as a metaphor for art and a blue sheet that looks like a river, The Making of a Great Moment is a tribute to the relentless pursuit of a creative and passionate life.
