Cashin Ave - PosterCashin Avenue by Darren Ivany

“Cashin Avenue” is the story of a last chance conversation between two underclass lovers, both of whom are desperate for something they’ve never had: Home. When what ‘home’ means to each of them threatens to deepen a divide that’s been growing for years, one of the lovers goes too far in his hunt for a happily ever after. It might mean the end, but it could be a dream come true.
With banter and black humour, “Cashin Avenue” explores the souring of high school sweethearts and how years of poverty and procrastination can push people to their limits. Sardonic, but not without sentiment, “Cashin Avenue” confronts the audience with a relationship near the end of its rope.

Produced by Salt Teeth Theatre Company
