Cast of Up to Low.

NAC English Theatre Production

  • By Brian Doyle
  • Adapted for the stage and directed by Janet Irwin

Based on the novel by Ottawa’s beloved Brian Doyle, Up to Low is the magical and mystical tale of a young boy’s journey to manhood. Twelve-year-old Tommy is on the road with his father and boozy Uncle Frank, heading back to the cabin they haven’t visited since Tommy’s mother died. But Tommy also remembers Bridget, whose eyes are the deep green of the Gatineau Hills. Filled with deserted farms, smoky taverns and midnight rows upriver, Up to Low captures 1950s Ottawa Valley in a way that is both familiar and brand new.

Up to Low is captivating, heart-warming, and above all, magical… definitely a show worth seeing for the whole family.”
I first saw this local masterwork just across the canal at Arts Court. There’s an impressive group of artists who live and work right here in Ottawa and this dark and exuberant piece showcases their great talent, telling a story close to their hearts.
