Patrick is kind, soft-spoken and sincere and Inside/Out is his real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s penitentiary system. And that’s the thing – you look at Patrick and think, “This guy robbed a bank?” Patrick’s honest and engaging delivery of his funny, sad, and stirring true story helps dismantle our ideas of what a ‘criminal’ looks like – and helps us better understand how language, race and class play a very real part in our lives as Canadians. It’s about a man’s search for community: the community of the street, the community of prison, and of the theatre.
“Writing and performing Inside/Out is one of the best choices Keating ever made.” – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier
