“About our community. Spoken by our community.”

In the spirit of community and of reconciliation, Persephone Theatre offers a powerful and timely new documentary play reflecting on race relations in our province.

In 2015, playwright and journalist Joel Bernbaum was commissioned by Persephone Theatre to gather interviews with local citizens for the purposes of writing a documentary play on race relations in our province.  Then, in 2016, Colten Boushie, was fatally shot on Gerald Stanley’s farm near Biggar, SK.  His death and the controversial court decision at Stanley’s trial shook Saskatchewan and the country. The interviews changed dramatically and the need for us to reconcile as a community became undeniable. Joel began collaborating with director/dramaturg Yvette Nolan and musician Lancelot Knight to create a new work.

One of the responsibilities of our theatre is to provide an opportunity for people to gather together safely and consider their shared experience through the works on our stage. Created from actual interviews and woven with transcripts from Gerald Stanley’s trial, REASONABLE DOUBT is a documentary play with live music that offers an opening for honest dialogue and a step towards shared healing.

Following each performance, audience members will be invited to participate in a 15 minute conversation about their experience of the play, hosted by Persephone’s Community Liaison Coordinator Lyndon J. Linklater and with support from leaders in our community.

 

Persephone Theatre is pleased to partner with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission to present two COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS moderated by Chief Commissioner David Arnot and featuring invited guest panelists. Presented at Persephone Theatre on February 4 & 11 prior to the 8:00 pm performances.
