John Lazarus, who plays the character Brent Solverman in the Canadian film “Skip Tracer”, will be at the film’s screening at the ByTowne Cinema on April 21st and will participate in a Q & A after the screening.

The film is part of an on-going series of screenings by the the Lost Dominion Screenings Collective. Based on a new 4K scan of an archival print, this will be the best projection of the film since its 1977 debut, and Ottawa audiences will get to see it first.

John Lazarus has been an award-winning Canadian playwright since 1970, and a renowned teacher of play-writing since the early 1990s. He is also known as a screenwriter, critic, and essayist.

He is author of Babel Rap, Dreaming and Duelling, The Late Blumer, Homework & Curtains, Genuine Fakes, The Trials of Eddy Haymour, Medea’s Disgust, Village of Idiots, Rough Magic Meltdown and Secrets. Lazarus is also the author of many plays for young audiences, including the four-play anthology Not So Dumb.
