Made In Italy

Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre

Relaxed performance.

It’s the 1970s and Francesco is the only kid in his Jasper school with a three-piece suit and a lunchbox full of cured meats and aged cheeses. Torn between his father’s deep Italian roots and the desire to adapt to his new country, Francesco Mantini fights his way to a new identity, with John Travolta as his model. Will the family bond survive Francesco’s rise to fame as Frank Martin? In this funny and charming one-man play, the journey from Abruzzo to Alberta is rife with twists and turns.
