My Autopsy

a one-man show by Hamish Boyd

From a precocious childhood dominated by the gothic imagery of a Dracula confused with Jesus, to a young adulthood variously defined by hippiedom and LSD, a summer spent cutting corpses in a hospital, and the quest for enlightenment, to the epiphany of later years that comes with seeing a kind of providence in the accumulated experience of a lifetime;  Boyd, who is directed in his darkly comic and altogether absorbing autobiographical dissection by longtime collaborator Fif Fernandes.

“A master storyteller. My Autopsy is a magical show.”
Bob Clark, Calgary Herald

My Autopsy, a dark comedy, represents a richly textured narrative line that gathers momentum across a 50-year span. It chronicles Boyd’s spiritual life story, an often amusing coming of age journey, from choirboy in church, to hippiedom of the 60s, to his quest for a mystical wisdom. A rich tapestry of experience delivered with wry wit.”  Sharon Pollock, CBC Radio

“…writing so colourful and a performance so multilayered that this show is not just entertaining, but engrossing and enlightening.”    Louis B. Hobson, Sun Media
