Gabriola Island

August 16-19, 2018

Heartbreaking, funny, thought-provoking, beautiful, musical.


Patrick is kind, soft-spoken and sincere; Inside/Out is his real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s penitentiary system.

And that’s the thing – you look at Patrick and think, ‘this guy robbed a bank?’
