Win a VIP Prize Package to See The Real McCoy at the Blyth Festival

Win a VIP Prize Package to see “The Real McCoy” at the Blyth Festival in Blyth, Ontario.

“The Real McCoy” is the true story of inventor Elijah McCoy (1843-1929), whose name became a byword for quality, as in “the real McCoy.”

Here’s what the critics are saying:

“The Real McCoy is a spectacular work.”
– Ari Lipsey, Stage Door

“First-rate… a thoughtful yet quickly paced examination of the man who became ‘the real McCoy.’”
– Kate Pederson, NOW Magazine

Andrew Moodie, the playwright, also wrote “Wilbur County Blues” for the Blyth Festival and is most noted for his plays “Riot,” which was a winner of the Floyd S. Chalmers Canadian Play Award and “Toronto the Good,” which was a Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee for Best Original Play.
