Lykos Theatre - Winnipeg, MB
V.3 - Théâtre Cercle Molière 
Turning 30 is hard. Turning 30 in a coma? That's another story! On April 3, 2015, Mike fell unconscious in his apartment. What followed was a 10-day bare-knuckle brawl back to a life that has never been the same. Witness the true story of one man's journey from incompatible with life to critical care to the long road to recovery. This brand new coma-ing of age tale from Winnipeg's own Mike de Jong examines survival, the fight of man vs. mind, and sleeping your way through your late 20s.

The Comaback Kid

Lykos Theatre—Théâtre Cercle Molière

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down in this theatre. Is this a comedy that will split my sides with laughter? Or a soul-searching journey that tugs at the heartstrings? Psst: it’s the latter.

I would have called this journey “brave” but de Jong says it’s not, so I won’t.
