CHOOSE, BUT CHOOSE WISELY
The London District of Upper Canada during the War of 1812
by Jeff Culbert
(Coming soon in paperback)
When the Americans declared war in 1812, the inhabitants of Upper Canada were given a choice by General Hull, the commander of Fort Detroit. They could either allow the American army
to take control of the region or face a war of extermination.
This play follows the reactions of five
neighbours living near the forks of the
Thames River (Askunissippi) in the
London District: a Chippewa scout,
a captain in the British militia, an American sympathizer and two
to a Fringe Near You!!
A series of monologues by solo performer Karie Richards, directed by Jeff Culbert, drawing from
verbatim interviews to question the existence of departed souls in our midst. Offering sympathetic portraits of eleven different people who share their sometimes unsettling, frequently funny, often poignant, yet always mysterious, experiences, this debut production
invites the audience into an ever-expanding and engaging conversation
about life and what may come after.
Coming to the Winnipeg and Nanaimo Fringes in the
summer of 2019.
