Charlie Kerr (Co-writer, Hogan)
Charlie Kerr is an actor, a musician and a playwright. His extensive work in these three fields has awarded him recognition last year as a ‘Star To Watch’ according to Variety Magazine, E! Canada and the Whistler Film Festival. He recently starred in ‘Lost Solace’ directed by: Chris Scheuerman (due out this year) and ‘Ice Blue’ directed by: Sandi Somers (currently doing it’s festival run). “After Wrestling” is the third play he has written together with Bryce Hodgson, the other two being “Piranha Club” which premiered in Vancouver and “Kill Your Parents In Viking, Alberta” which premiered in Toronto as a collaboration with The Storefront theatre. He wants to thank everyone at Factory theatre, and everyone involved with Blood Pact, but mostly whoever is reading this program. You could be anywhere in the world right now, and you’re here with us, we appreciate that. Enjoy the show.

After Wrestling
When your best friend kills himself and Facebook stalking your ex-girlfriend just ain’t what it used to be, look no further than rolling in duck feces and living in the park. Unfortunately for Hogan, his sister and the cops don’t share his same enthusiasm for DIY self-help.

After Wrestling is a slacker-comedy turned suicide-mystery that finds itself in a booze- and grief- fuelled magic realism debate on love, life, and after-death.

Its always been important to me that the podcast is a service to the Canadian theatre scene. Which brings the question: what does the Canadian theatre scene actually need?
