Following the latest COVID-19 advisory by the Government of Saskatchewan, we regret that the run of Inside/Out has been cancelled.
Patrick Keating is kind, soft-spoken and sincere; Inside/Out is his compelling real-life story of years spent in and out of Canada’s penitentiary system. Patrick’s funny, sad, and stirring true story helps dismantle our ideas of what a ‘criminal’ looks like. A play about a man’s search for community: the community of the street, the community of prison, and the community of theatre.
Darkly funny… a vivid and necessary reminder that people in prison are, first and foremost, human beings.
Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
Writing and performing Inside/Out is one of the best choices Keating ever made.
Jo Ledingham, On the Scene
This is compelling, embracing, troubling, and touching theatre as up close and personal as it gets.
A Graduate of Simon Fraser’s School for the Contemporary Arts Patrick has been working as an actor in Vancouver TV Film and Theatre scene for the past twenty years.

He has been recognized with two Jessie Richardson Award Nominations. Inside/Out is Patrick’s first venture into playwriting.
Sandy is thrilled to be stage managing Inside/Out. Her career has spanned over 30 years and every province in the country. From her early days in the dance world (Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Judith Marcuse Dance Company, Universal Ballet of Seoul, Korea) through a stretch of freelance work (Theatre Passe Muraille, Muskoka Festival, Stratford Festival) to many years with Pacific Opera Victoria, she has enjoyed a diverse and exciting career in stage management. After twelve years based on Gabriola Island, Sandy is happy to be freelancing once again, working with friends, old and new, and to make Vancouver her home again.
Persephone Theatre is thankful for the generous support of the City of Saskatoon, The Saskatchewan Arts Board, Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation, Canadian Heritage Cultural Spaces Fund, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
