1959, Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County, Canada. On the edge of spring, two men are finishing an A-frame cabin on Roblin Lake. In the coming decade all three of them—Al, Milt, and the A-frame—will become famous and change the face of Canadian poetry. But for now all they have is the stench of sweat, whiskey, and words. From Governor General’s Literary Award–winner David Yee, among men is a poetic and charged portrait of male friendship in uncertain times, and a story of how Canadian literature was changed forever.
“David Yee has taken a footnote in Canadian literature and created a play that is raucous, lively, crude . . . and extremely moving.”- Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
“A laugh-out-loud, moving piece of art.”- Janine Marley, A View From the Box
“Masterful storytelling.”- Joe Szekeres, Our Theatre Voice
“David Yee’s among men- Anusree Roy, Governor General's Literary Award–nominated playwright and actor
is an electric gut punch! The nuances of the
story, the complex characters, and their layered narrative hits home.
It’s Yee at his finest.”
