“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. and the interviews changed dramatically.

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 Lyndon J. Linklater and facilitated by leaders in our community.
