RE-CALCULATING is a one-man show that offers a rare glimpse into the lived experience of disability. Co-written by Lucas Foss and Liesl Lafferty, and directed by Jeffrey Renn, this show   premiered in Vancouver at CBC Studio 700 in January 2015.

Featuring Dave Symington, an actor who lives with quadriplegia, RE-CALCULATING candidly explores the maturation of a middle aged drummer.  Dave’s amazing live drumming is a catalyst for memory, an emotional outlet, and is used to negotiate the central question of identity.


Genuine, revelatory, and sometimes hilarious, Re-calculating  will have you leaving the theatre doing some ‘re-calculating’ of your own. ~ Audience Member
