I Dream Of Diesel
A collective creation from ONE TRUNK THEATRE
Directed by Andraea Sartison
April 8 – 19, 2015
Venue: The Rachel Browne Theatre – 211 Bannatyne Ave. (at Main Street)
A long stretch of country roads bend past diners, motels, homesteads and driveways of characters who each have a story deserving of a song.
Inspired by the music of singer-songwriter Scott Nolan, OTT presents its newest theatrical experiment. I Dream of Diesel integrates video, photography, live theatre, puppetry and shadow play as it follows the life of Sylvia, a waitress whose new marriage lands her on a beaten down family farm.
I Dream of Diesel was created as part of One Trunk’s residency with Theatre Projects Manitoba and performed in progress at various 2013/14 Salons and the Carol Shields Festival of New Works.
A Prairie Love story of a girl and the land.

After 2008’s stripped-down Receiver/Reflector, veteran singer-songwriter Scott Nolan turns it up on his fourth full-length album. You Rock We Roll Nolan pays respect to his late friend Ernie Blackburn of Ernie’s Backline Services, while opening track Drive Day is in honour of Canadian folk singer Willie P. Bennett. Sentimental but not sappy, these lyrical laments are full of raw roots-rock power. My My Hey Hey keeps the get-up-and-go going with some groovy guitar courtesy of producer James Creasey and bluesy slow-burner Ain’t Dead Yet (featuring The Holmes Brothers) makes up for its lack of speed with fire. Hot stuff!
