In ROOF, a humorous yet socially conscious one-person show, Lucas Myers weaves together elements of stand-up comedy, physical theatre, and his trademark brand of observational humor to tell the story of Dave and Stevie.

Dave is a highly successful real estate agent who is living the dream: hot car, great kids, beautiful wife, gorgeous sound system, designer kitchen. Just as he is about to launch his own self-improvement video series, #HiMyNameIsDave, he discovers major issues with his roof and cracks begin to form in his perfect world. Enter Stevie, a journeyman roofer with aspirations of being a stand-up comic, who is the only person capable of dealing with Dave’s narcissistic hyper vigilance. As they attempt to collaborateon the roof project, Stevie forces Dave to confront his shortcomings and come to terms with what being a good person really means. As their initial views of each other are challenged, ROOF examines our preconceptions around mental health, addiction, and homelessness as the characters are forced to confront their own assumptions.

Created and performed by Lucas Myers, the creator of A Beginners Guide to Nelsonia, CAMPGROUND and DECK.

Please note: This performance is not suitable for children.

There will be a short post-show chat, free naloxone kits will be distributed and a counselor will be on location to help anyone who needs to talk.

Audience Responses:

“Sometimes life lessons come from the most unexpected places. Who would have thought a one man comedy show could make your eyes well up with tears. I am inspired to be a better “good human” thanks to your amazing show!”

“What a great show! I am in awe about how you have created a totally fresh new piece. This one is so important and SO funny and so true. You have done such a great job reflecting our social isolation to us while the act of watching this show with others makes you feel connected. Bravo!”

“Bravo for ROOF. We went on Friday night and all of us aged 16 to 80 agreed you absolutely knocked it out of the park. Well done!!”
