Reasonable Doubt

Now – Feb. 12

Persephone Theatre

It’s a show that’s received national attention and is sure to keep the discussion going long after the curtain closes. Reasonable Doubt comes from the creators of some of the most ground-breaking theatre our community has seen in the past few years. The documentary play by Joel Bernbaum, Lancelot Knight and Yvette Nolan is is based on the public’s reaction to real-life, tragic events in our community. Fuelled by the response to the death of Colton Boushie, an Indigenous man who was fatally shot on a Saskatchewan farm in 2016. Bernbaum set out to interview Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and gather their reactions and opinions surrounding the shooting. The trial and media firestorm that followed polarized our country and this show takes an inclusive look at public opinion surrounding the events. The production will be followed by post-show discussions with the audience and is meant to be a first step towards healing. Tickets are $41 – $51.
