ABOUT THE PLAY
Street hockey buddies gather for a game. It's 1967 - the Centennial, the last year of the NHL’s original six and the “summer of love.” This quintessentially Canadian comedy follows the five 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.
"A wise and gentle comedy that shows how the experience of playing a game together gradually turns into an unbreakable friendship." - Stage Door
"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
"Cannot say enough about this play. A great idea for a group of old friends to get together." - Pen Gwyn
