From press release:

Coyote Collective, comprised of the trio of Susannah Mackay, Eric Welch, and Blue Bigwood-Mallin, is making their Toronto Fringe debut with their flagship production “Like A Generation.” Originally staged at TPM in the winter of 2013, the show has continued to evolve through workshops and revision over a three year period. It was remounted in the fall of 2015 at Dancemakers in the Distillery District and has been reinvented for the 2016 Toronto Fringe. What started as a collective creation based heavily on metaphysical ideas and a non-linear narrative, has evolved into an intimate, character driven, three-handed comedy that explores coming of age in the 21st Century.

Synopsis:

After 20 years of children’s TV, Mr. Flowers’ show is being cancelled. He now has one hour, with the help of two lifelong fans, to prove that his message still matters. But things go awry when childhood ideals and bitter reality collide. A lively, carnivalesque take on coming of age in the 21st century.
