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 Straigh
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.
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.
