You don’t need to know anything about hockey to love the exhilarating, heartbreaking and triumphant true story of courageous Canadian hockey legend, Theoren Fleury. With the odds stacked against him, the pint-sized Métis kid with huge ambitions from Russell MB overcame crushing obstacles to become an NHL All-Star, with the Stanley Cup and represent Canada twice at the Olympic Games where he earned a gold medal. This top-scoring theatrical tour-de-force has received rave reviews everywhere it’s played, from Calgary to Halifax to Hamilton and it’s performed entirely on ice! This is more than hockey. This is life.
