Saskatoon theatre production documents death of Colten Boushie, trial of Gerald Stanley
Play’s creators facilitate discussion following performance to help audience debrief
A new Persephone Theatre production tackles one of the most controversial events in recent Saskatchewan history.
Reasonable Doubt examines Indigenous, non-Indigenous and newcomer relations through the lens of Colten Boushie’s 2016 death and the resulting trial of Gerald Stanley.
The creators attempt to showcase every side of the story in the production.
“The piece actually started four years ago, long before anyone knew the names Colten Boushie and Gerald Stanley,” said co-creator Joel Bernbaum.
