Dear Patrons of the High Performance Rodeo,

We must regretfully inform you that due to an illness, and the inability of the performer to travel to Canada, all scheduled performances of A Not So Trivial Pursuit have been cancelled. The original performance dates of Jan. 24, 25, 26, and 27, 2024 are cancelled, and there are currently no plans to reschedule them.

If you have purchased tickets to this show, you will receive an email from the Box Office with your options. 

We appreciate your patronage, and are sad that we won’t be able to present Hew Parham’s show in Calgary this year. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, and thank you for your understanding. See you at the Rodeo!

Oliver Armstrong, Producer
Blake Brooker, Artistic Director

You cannot but be astonished at his honesty and openness and you want to thank him for sharing - Barefoot Review

Hew Parham has a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. Trapped in a real-life game of Trivial Pursuit and haunted by a psychotic rules Nazi, Hew must make his way through this game of life to find his missing pieces. 

The audience soon sees that the game of trivial pursuit becomes a metaphor for the fractured parts of ourselves; the romantic who takes us half-way across the globe and the scaredy-cat who keeps bringing us home.
