We follow Loddy and the troupe from The Garage Theatre as their lives unfold against the backdrop of political events in Montreal starting with EXPO 67 and ending in 1970 with the October Crisis. With the city as background, Loddy-Dah explores issues of self-identity and self-acceptance, the magic of friendship and love, and the power of resilience in the face of adversity.
When Loddy moved into the three-storey walk-up near McGill University, she painted her basement apartment the colour of a boiled egg, and then for the hell of it, stencilled a wide China Red semi-circle across the living room wall, top to bottom, and called it the Rising Sun. Red. Her mother, Alma, hated red. She said it was the colour of communists and blood -- the colour of pain. So Loddy wore only red.
