Jayson McDonald’s multi-award winning masterpiece inspired by the life and work of beat writers William S Burroughs and his contemporaries.
Georgia Straight Critic’s Pick – Vancouver 2012
“The beat goes on in Jayson McDonald’s homage to junkie wordslinger William S. Burroughs. The London writer-performer’s rambling, hallucinogenic circle tour of Burroughs’ life is an artfully conceived 75-minute tangent that incorporates a skilful cutup of biographical notes, along with cameos from beat contemporaries Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. Rife with visceral imagery and poetic virtuosity, it packs an impressive cerebral punch.” – Winnipeg Free Press
“Darkly funny … an exhilarating freefall into language and image, see Underbelly. Once is barely enough.” – Vancouver Courier
