A young man goes missing from a provincial campground while on a personal journey to discover himself. Four people are suspects, despite lack of evidence aside from Facebook posts and the video from the young man’s cell phone but the overzealous detective is undeterred. Was there foul play? More importantly, did someone remember to bring the toilet paper (and the potato salad)? Lucas Myers brings his trademark brand of observational humor and brilliant character work to this examination of the world within a world that can only be found in THE CAMPGROUND, March 16 at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.
