This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Canadian troops liberating Holland at the end of World War II. In honour of that anniversary and in time for Remembrance Day, Burnt Thicket Theatre is staging an online reading of Andrew Kooman’s Delft Blue. The story follows Machiel and his wife Sophia who are living in Delft, Holland when it falls to the Nazis in 1940. The couple is faced with a terrible choice of surrendering or defying the occupation as they try to protect their daughter. The playwright says this is a story about impossible decisions that people have to make in impossible times and what it means to live a “good life”. The reading will feature many well-known Saskatoon artists including Tim Bratton and Caitlin Vancoughnett. This performance will be on Burnt Thicket’s Facebook and YouTube channels until the end of the month.
