This is the Thing

By Patrick Brennan
Published July 20, 2009

Alone in a room...with a guitar...and the memory of his mom. Well written and performed by Jeff Jones.

We float in and out of the hospital room. Jeff gives us jump cuts of his life around the memory of mom and self. Heartfelt. True. This is his whole life in a moment. A commonly told personal story.

I look forward to the next play Jeff writes. This is the Thing is a well told honour to his mom. Don't miss it.

Patrick Brennan is the artistic director of Public Utility Performance. Public Utility Performance wishes to support a broad variety of performance in Hamilton, Ontario and the surrounding area. PUP grew out of Patrick Brennan technical, managerial and design practice. Recent projects span theatre, film and dance in the professional, community and educational arenas. A need for support of site specific and community arts has arisen out of his involvement with the Downtown Arts Centre. PUP hopes to provide dance and performance artists in Hamilton with both the opportunity to develop new skills and explore new areas of expression and design.
