BLYTH, Ont. — The Blyth Festival is currently presenting the world of trucking in Saskatchewan in its presentation of Cruel Tears.

This classic Canadian musical explores the passion, politics and hardships faced by a hard living group of Prairie truckers.

As part of the kick-off ceremony for this year’s festival, local truckers joined in a truck parade through town prior to an evening performance.

Cruel Tears centers on the story of Johnny Roychuck, a handsome young truck driver who woos the boss’ daughter only to find jealousy and betrayal around the every bend of a dangerous road.

Cruel Tears opened on July 13, and runs trough until Sept. 2. Call the box office toll-free at 877-862-5984 to book your tickets today.
