"you’ll want to make a point of following along with master storyteller Jacques Lalonde as the well-loved Vancouver actor recounts his journey from near basket case to almost full recovery in Stroke of Luck." Larry Ghini Vancouverscapes
After a smashing preview show as part of Railtown Cultural Eclective’s Trier Series, the indomitable Jacques Lalonde's one-man STROKE OF LUCK opened to sold out house last night at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, Havana Theatre.
On July 1, 2013, Jacques Lalonde had a stroke that left him without the use of his right arm and right side of his face. STROKE OF LUCK uses Jacques' renowned storytelling skills to give us an inside look at how the brain works and the difficult road to recovery.
Hilarious and poignant, STROKE OF LUCK gives us hope, inspires us to see the beauty of life in new ways, and will help develop your Christopher Walken impersonation. Will Jacques be able to use his right hand again? Will he ever be able to sing? What can he now do with his left hand that he couldn't do before? Go see Stroke of Luck and all will be revealed with the charm and wit Jacques is famous for in his storytelling!
