Penned by internationally featured playwright Chris Craddock, one-man show Moving Along also stars the playwright as he unfolds his life for audiences through autobiographical monologue. Seated in a wired and theatrically lit “electro-chair,” Chris employs a striking blend of humour and touching nostalgia as he divulges childhood memories, adolescent struggles, and adult rites of passage, such as building his first house with straw. The multimedia chair bathes the space in dramatic lights and sound to aid in storytelling and highlight Chris’s fast-paced, stationary performance. Through an ever-evolving script and dramatic sound design from Dave Clarke, Chris invites audiences to explore a stranger’s memory without having to wade through photo albums or learn telepathy. Audiences gather around the stage of the Roxy Theatre, a refurbished 1938 cinema and the nonprofit Theatre Network’s permanent space.
