No Tweed Too Tight

Another Grant Canyon Mystery!

Winner of the BCTC Most Promising Touring Act Award.

No Tweed Too Tight is a fast-paced, raunchy, one man physical theatre comedy with enough twists and turns to keep you as confused as it’s hero Grant Canyon!

The year is 1981. Grant Canyon is a perpetually inebriated insurance investigator. In his few coherent moments he leaves a wake of dead bodies, satisfied ladies, and empty bottles as he staggers toward a shocking and fiery conclusion.

When Grant Canyon is on the case, the world is a dangerous place!

In 2003, while researching and writing The Big Rock Show: The Complete History of the World, Ryan Gladstone and Bruce Horak (creator/performer of last year’s hit This Is Cancer) locked themselves in a cabin in the Kootenay mountains near Invermere, BC for three months.  They wrote a weekly improvised detective serial called ‘No Tweed Too Tight’.  Each week they would read over what had come before, and then try and get their hero into even more trouble.  Never planning how the thing might wrap up, they stumbled upon a fantastic surprise ending that they kept intact for the long-delayed stage version.
