After breaking up the family act in 1916, Keatonesque comedic performer Billy Pascoe retreats to Muskoka to consider his prospects as a solo performer. Instead, Pascoe discovers an unlikely partner and straightman in Lucinda Hart, one half of a disbanded song-and-dance sister act. While still wrestling to mesh their vastly different experiences of rehearsal and performance, Pascoe & Hart hit the vaudeville circuit, perfecting their act, gaining each other’s trust and winning over audiences. Brennan’s portrayal of the intimate, often tenuous interactions underlying the collaborative creative process reminds us of the stage’s kinship with everyday life, where limits must be tested and risks taken in the pursuit of greater dreams.
