Fifteen Miles of Broken Glass

By Tom Hendry

There I was just out of high school, all eager for the future, and there was the road to the future stretching out in front of me like fifteen miles of broken glass.”

Set in Winnipeg in August, 1945, Fifteen Miles of Broken Glass is Tom Hendry’s look at post-World War II Canada from a recent high-school graduate’s viewpoint. The play was commissioned for and broadcast over English language CBC-TV in the series Festival in September of 1966. Subsequently, it has had several theatre productions. Cast of two women and nine men.

"Defines a uniquely Canadian experience that expands to the universal."
