One night only
Veteran Nelson performer Pat Henman brings her moving story to the stage this spring in several Kootenay communities. Based on her 2021 memoir of the same name, Beyond The Legal Limit recalls the events of a sunny Sunday afternoon in June 2013, when, driving home from Calgary with her 19-year-old daughter Maia, they were struck head-on by a drunk driver, Henman uses a fusion of story-telling and concert to tell the story of trauma and recovery in this unique and passionate one-act drama with music, directed by acclaimed theatre director, writer, and performer Tracey Power.
"Creating this project was a personal challenge and a triumph, especially during a global pandemic. The creative team that is the backbone of this show met each challenge head-on. Through zoom, email and finally, in person I have had the privilege to collaborate with some of Canada's finest talent. I am so grateful to be finally sharing it live with communities throughout our region."
Henman is a veteran of Canadian theatre as actor, singer and director, with radio, television and film credits spanning a 40-year career in the performing arts. Kootenay audiences have enjoyed the many stage productions she has directed, most recently Mama Mia!, and her unforgettable performances in plays such as Steel Magnolias and The Gin Game.
