Venue: Living Rooms between Saskatoon to Victoria

February 23 - March 17, 2024

“We all have baggage, mine just has a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker on it.”

My Little Plastic Jesus by Tim Bratton

In this one-man living room show, Tim Bratton finds hilarity and heartache as he unpacks his upbringing in evangelical pop culture, examining its folly and redeeming its faith. Experience an insider’s quest to unravel his own existential crisis by deconstructing the culture he grew up in, with both satire and love.

Part confession, part history lesson, part multimedia extravaganza, discover this surprisingly poignant coming of age story from a subculture that's so little understood even as it impacts global politics and the perspectives of millions.

About Tim Bratton*

Tim is privileged to be the Artistic Associate for Burnt Thicket Theatre and is excited to finally be sharing this one man show, a true labour of love. Tim is a local actor and aspiring theatrical dilettante with diverse artistic talents and interests. You may have seen Tim on a Saskatoon stage in lead roles of recent productions such as Miss Bennet: Christmas At the Pemberley (Persephone), The Curst (Dancing Sky), Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (Persephone), Boeing Boeing (Persephone), Pride & Prejudice (Persephone), Art (Persephone), Burnt Thicket's We Are the Body, or Godspell (Vancouver's Pacific Theatre). Tim lives in the King George neighbourhood with his lovely wife, Amy, and their two very active little boys.

Praise for Tim's acting:

SATAward nomination for Outstanding Original Script and Outstanding Leading Performance for My Little Plastic Jesus, 2020.

SATAward nomination for Outstanding Leading Performance for his role as Robert in Persephone Theatre's BOEING, BOEING, 2019.

“The showstopper [in Persephone Theatre's production of ‘Art’] is a speech by Yvan recounting a tense conversation about wedding invitations between his wife and mother. It’s torturously complex, wonderfully absurd and insanely long, but you understand all of it thanks to Tim Bratton’s stellar enactment.”–Saskatoon StarPhoenix

*The participation of this Artist is arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association under the provisions of the Dance Opera Theatre Policy (DOT).

Audience Reviews:

“Thank you for an outstanding experience. We are still debriefing it and the talk back afterward was so enriching. My sisters & I were truly challenged & touched.” –Kathie Greene

“Funny, insightful, thought-provoking & heartbreaking. Tim Bratton delivers a tour de force performance. A great evening!” –Bruce McKay, Artistic Director of La Troupe du Jour

"Brilliant… looks deeply and critically at evangelical pop culture, finds hope in people, in love, and even in faith… Not just for a Christian audience, it’s funny and speaks to the weirdness of any kind of cultural tribalism or counter-culture experience. I highly, highly recommend the show." –Ky Hingston
