Davy the Punk is Bob Bossin's new one-man musical about his father's life in the gambling underworld - a story that is, according to CBC’s Michael Enright, “fascinating… amazing and sometimes hilarious.” It is, “so outrageous,” says Andreas Schroeder, “it’s worthy of a Mordecai Richler novel.” Davy the Punk comes to the Haliburton Highlands. Davy Bossin, Bob’s father, was born in 1905. Finding his way blocked by the rampant anti-semitism of the time, Davy blazed his own path in a new, vibrant, international industry - gambling. There he matched wits with cops and mobsters, grifters and grafters, crooks and judges. His court cases set precedents that affect us to this day. Davy’s son Bob grew up to found Stringband, to pioneer Canadian indie music, and to write songs Pete Seeger praised as “funny, informative and inspiring at the same time.” Now Bossin Jr. tells Bossin Sr.’s story, in a performance that is, entertaining, illuminating and, at times, touching. Seating is limited.Tickets are $20 and a place will be reserved by calling 705-754-9873

Cost: 20.00 per person
