Chick Reid stars in a sneak preview of Dave's new play Canadian Rajah. The staged reading is taking place at the enchanting Wesleyville Arts Centre on Monday, August 29.
Canadian Rajah tells the bizarre but true story of Esca Brooke Daykin, who was exiled from Sarawak (now part of Malaysia) and ended up in Madoc, Ontario. The eldest son of the then independent country's rajah, Esca by rights should have been the Rajah of Sarawak - but that country's loss is our gain. Join actors Chick Reid and Richard Lee (below), as well as some of Esca's descendents - and hear discover more about the incredible life of Esca.
The reading is at 7 pm - exact directions will be posted here soon. Admission is free but donations will be happily accepted.
