Young Jimmy in Bordertown Café faces the archetypal Canadian dilemma: embrace the powerfully encoded Western hero of American popular myth embodied by his father-the cowboy as trucker, his mythic status enhanced by his never appearing on stage; or engage the task of building a different identity, embodied by his mother and her family ?on the Canadian side of nowhere.”

Cast of two women and two men.

Kelly Rebar
Kelly Rebar’s play Bordertown Café is the winner of the 1990 CAA for Drama. This comedy-drama is set in a café on the Canadian side of the Alberta/Montana border and is about a family whose members are torn between their unrealized goals and dreams. In addition to theatre, Rebar also writes for television and film and has several screenwriting and story editing credits to her name. She has also adapted several of Alice Munro’s short stories, including the television feature based on Lives of Girls and Women.
